Aston Villa are yet to hear back from Manchester United following their attempts to sign Axel Tuanzebe on loan, according to the Mirror.

It’s claimed that the Villains want to recruit the promising defender on loan until the end of the season as Steve Bruce’s men aim to push for a strong end to the season.

However, United are yet to respond to Villa about their approach and the Championship outfit are said to be growing increasingly concerned that a deal may not be struck.

Tuanzebe is held in high esteem at Old Trafford but has not been featuring frequently under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United. A loan move away for the defender could lead him to valuable first-team experience.

The 20-year-old is a central defender by trade but has also featured at right-back before. Tuanzebe has performed well when called upon in United’s first side and it seems Villa are anxious to recruit him.
