Man United's Axel Tuanzebe returns to Aston Villa on loan

MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe has agreed to join Aston Villa in a season-long loan deal.

The 20-year-old will rejoin the Championship club after making five appearances on loan at Villa Park last season before an ankle injury ended his campaign.

Tuanzebe, who has made eight senior appearances for United, was part of Jose Mourinho's squad for the U.S. tour and featured as a second-half substitute during the defeat to Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Sunday.


Can Man United's returning loanees save the club millions in the transfer market?

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is already busy trying to strengthen his squad ahead of what he hopes is a Premier League title challenge next season.

Man United face Jose Mourinho-led overhaul in defence and midfield

Jose Mourinho's assessment of Manchester United's season is simple: "Progress, but we need more."

With three Premier League games remaining, United have already amassed more points and scored more goals than they managed last season. Four points from fixtures against Brighton, West Ham and Watford would see them secure second place in the table, which would be their highest finish since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

Mourinho is already convinced, probably correctly, that his team have been...

Jesse Lingard's brace easily carries Manchester United past Swansea

Manchester United made their way through to the final eight of the Carabao Cup largely without incident, as they claimed a 2-0 victory thanks to two goals from Jesse Lingard. His excellent finishes seemed to belong to a different game, as Swansea, with the exception of a couple of flourishes, offered little resistance. United, who made seven changes from their defeat against Huddersfield, deserve credit for a dominant performance.
