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.
