Axel Tuanzebe joins Aston Villa on loan

Aston Villa have re-signed defender Axel Tuanzebe on a season-long loan from Manchester United.

Tuanzebe, 23, has also signed a contract extension at Old Trafford until June 2023.

He returns to the Midlands club for a third time.

Axel Tuanzebe made 35 appearances across two separate spells in 2018 and 2019.

The defender was part of the Villa side that beat Derby in the 2019 Championship play-off final at Wembley.

His arrival comes three days after Villa sold Jack Grealish to Manchester City for a British record £100m

Tuanzebe is the fifth player to arrive at Villa Park this summer.

Others include Danny Ings, Leon Bailey, Emiliano Buendia and Ashley Young.

Axel Tuanzebe joined Manchester United at the age of eight.

He has made 37 senior appearances for the club since making his first-team debut in 2017.
