Aston Villa have re-signed Axel Tuanzebe on loan.

The Manchester United defender previously spent the second half of the 2017/18 season at Villa Park and will now get the chance to showcase himself over the course of an entire campaign.

Tuanzebe made five Championship appearances

Tuanzebe’s opportunities at Villa were limited due to injuries last season, but he has returned to fitness and enjoyed pre-season with his parent club on their tour of the US.

“It’s great to be back,” said the 20-year-old.”

“This is a big, big club and to represent it again is a big honour for me.

“It made perfect sense for me to return for the season ahead. I know my way around the place now and owe a lot to the great people who’ve really looked after me.

“It was a no-brainer and now the ambition remains the same as last season – to reach the Premier League.

“I believe the squad we have here are more than capable of achieving it and playing at that level.”
