Aston Villa reportedly want to sign Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe on a permanent deal.
The England Under-21 international spent time on loan with Villa during the 2017-18 campaign before returning to Villa Park last term, making 30 appearances in all competitions.
According to the Daily Mail, though, Villa will fight hard to land the centre-back on a permanent deal, although the newly-promoted club are currently unsure whether United would be prepared to sell.
Tuanzebe, who came through the youth system at Old Trafford, has only made eight first-team appearances for his parent club.
Villa recently broke their transfer record to sign Wesley Moraes from Club Brugge following their promotion to the Premier League.body check tags ::
