England’s U21 international will stay at Villa Park until the end of the season when the player’s loan deal comes to an end and in Tuanzebe, the Villans have a defender who can be used in multiple positions, as he can be played anywhere across the back line.
It is possible that the highly-rated Manchester United youngster could now feature in the Claret and Blue’s next Championship fixture which is away at Sheffield United on Tuesday as the side make a bid to go for second spot in the league and cement their ambitions for promotion to the Premier League.
