According to the Sun, Manchester United are looking happy to let Axel Tuanzebe continue his loan spell at the club into next season.
The defender has been excellent in recent times for us and though injury has seen him miss some games in 2019, we know how good he can be.
Certainly, this is exciting news and it shows that Villa are being seen as the right sort of place for these young players to develop.
Tuanzebe is highly-rated by Manchester United but he probably isn’t ready just yet to feature for them on a regular basis.
Regardless of division, though, it seems that they are willing to let him play for us next season, however, and I’d have thought that bodes well for the rest of the summer window.
If clubs see Villa as the right sort of place to send these youngsters then that is only a good thing and it is clear that other sides could potentially follow suit in letting us help them develop.
