Aston Villa have signed defender Axel Tuanzebe from Premier League rivals Manchester United on a season-long loan, the Birmingham club announced Sunday.
“Aston Villa is delighted to announce the loan signing of Axel Tuanzebe from Manchester United,” said a club statement.
Tuanzebe had returned to Villa Park two years after helping the club gain promotion to the Premier League via the Championship play-offs.
The 23-year-old made 30 appearances for Villa in all competitions that season before returning to Old Trafford.
Tuanzebe played 10 times for Manchester United’s first team in the 2019⁄20 campaign and appeared in a further 18 games in all competitions for the Red Devils last season, collecting seven yellow cards in his first 13 matches.
