Aston Villa completed their first signing of the January transfer window by confirming the loan deal of Axel Tuanzebe – and fans were pleased with the arrival on social media.

The Manchester United defender has joined Steve Bruce’s side on a six-month temporary deal as the Villans look to get back to the Premier League.

The Villa Park outfit are currently fourth in the Championship table and have been performing well in recent matches, giving them a solid platform to be chasing for a spot in England’s top-flight next season.

Bruce has been quiet in regards to acquisitions this winter, holding back on the spending after a busy summer, however, the addition of Tuanzebe has pleased many in and around the club.

The defender has appeared for Manchester United’s first-team a handful of times and is highly-rated by the Red Devils, with Jose Mourinho giving the youngster a chance in the Champions League.

The youngster will be keen to impress the Villa boss and will be pleased with the opportunity to learn under the guidance of Bruce in his first loan spell away from the club.

Tuanzebe will be hoping his time at Villa Park will benefit him and help him to improve as a player, and with the prospect of playing regularly in the Championship, he should return back to Old Trafford in the summer as a better player.

Villa fans were delighted with the news of the capture and were quick to welcome him to the club and could not wait to see what he will offer to the team’s efforts as they chase a place in next year’s Premier League.
