Manchester United centre-back Axel Tuanzebe is being linked to Newcastle United and Aston Villa.

The youngster is likely to leave on loan this summer, as United are close to completing the transfer of Raphael Varane from Real Madrid.

According to Football Insider, Newcastle have jumped to the head of the queue to sign Tuanzebe.

The 23-year-old wants regular first team football, and United are willing to let him leave on loan.

Villa are also in the hunt for Tuanzebe, as manager Dean Smith wants a fast centre-back, and Tuanzebe had two successful loan spells at the club earlier in his career.
