Aston Villa make loan bid for Man Utd defender Axel Tuanzebe

Aston Villa are moving for Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe.

The Mirror says the Villans have left a loan enquiry with Old Trafford chief Jose Mourinho and are now waiting for a response.

Tuanzebe is regarded highly inside English football and Villa are keen to take him on for the second-half of the season.

The 20-year-old centre-half is a former winner of the club's young player of the year award and has broken through under the Portuguese and has been training with the Red Devils' first-team squad.

However, Mourinho wants to give the youngster, born in DR Congo, frontline experience and Villa boss Steve Bruce believed they were in with a good shout of landing the powerful defender.
