Statement:

Aston Villa is delighted to announce the loan signing of Axel Tuanzebe from Manchester United.

The defender returns to Villa Park on a season-long arrangement.

Tuanzebe was a key member of the squad that helped Villa clinch promotion back to the Premier League in 2019.

The 23-year-old has made regular appearances in the Premier League, Champions League and Europa League for United over the past two seasons, impressing at both centre back and right back.
