Manchester United are making Axel Tuanzebe available.

The Sun says United want £5m for sending centre-half Tuanzebe on loan.

The powerful defender, 23, is wanted by Newcastle and Aston Villa among others and could be allowed out of Old Trafford to get game time.

But United are after £5m - to cover wages over the season and a loan fee - for Tuanzebe and do not plan to budge from that.

Tuanzebe had a previous spell at Villa in the Championship but United are asking for a premium rate to send him to a Premier League home.

United will not give up on the academy product but a year in the Prem would help - the cost also encourages Toon and Villa to weigh up his likely playing time to justify the expense.
