Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe has joined Aston Villa on loan for the remainder of the season.
The 20-year-old made three appearances for the Red Devils this season, having broken through to the first team under Jose Mourinho, and the club have sent him on loan to gain further experience playing regular minutes.

Mourinho seems to rate the youngster quite highly, describing him as a 'talented boy' in a recent interview.
“Tuanzebe is a very good player that is not having lots of possibilities to play here,” the Portuguese said. “But he’s our player and he will be our player – no chance we give up on such a talented boy. He is a player that we like very much.”
Tuanzebe has since spoken to the Villa website, insisting that he's happy to have joined the team.
“I am delighted to be here," he declared.
