Birmingham Mail are reporting that we’re in for him on loan until the end of the season, so I thought he deserved his own thread.

Aston Villa are hoping to tie up a loan deal for Manchester United utility man Axel Tuanzebe.

The 20-year-old can play in defence or midfield and has shot to prominence in the last two seasons with United boss Jose Mourinho occasionally calling upon him in the Premier League.

 

Tuanzebe also made his Champions League debut in United's 2-1 win over CSKA Moscow at Old Trafford in December.

After eight appearances for the Red Devils' first team, Tuanzebe is set to be given the opportunity to test himself more regularly in senior football, and Villa boss Steve Bruce is very keen.

I only have very limited knowledge of Tuanzebe, I've seen him play for Man Utd's first team a few times and he fits in well, could be a very astute loan signing

Asked a Man Utd mate about him and he said this is the kid who apparently kept Sanchez in his pocket for when he had his first senior debut...not bad

So anyone come up with a chant for him yet?

Tuanzebe should be easy enough to fit into most songs...

According to wiki his preferred positions are centre back and at right back? 2 areas in which we have loads of players. If we need any defensive players it would be a left back surely, along with a target man and a nippy wide player.

I think he can play in front of the back 4 too
