Manchester United have confirmed their centre-back Axel Tuanzebe has joined Stoke City on loan for the remainder of the season. 

The academy graduate has made 37 senior appearances so far at United. 

The 25-year-old was on loan at Napoli for the second-half of last season but greatly struggled for game time in Italy 

The defender has also endured a difficult campaign at Old Trafford, failing to make a single appearance under Erik ten Hag.  

But now Tuanzebe has completed a loan move to Stoke City for the rest of the 2022-23 season. 

The Manchester club have also sent Charlie McNeill on loan to Newport County.

Brilliant decision 

The 25-year-old has always remained on the fringes of the squad at Manchester United. 

His best campaign at Old Trafford was in 2020-21 when he featured in 19 appearances across all competitions. 

Since then, he has found first-team minutes hard to come by at United. 

The 25-year-old has also battled a series of injuries in recent years and that has also hampered his progress. 

Sending him on loan to a Championship club is a brilliant decision. The defender needs to get his confidence back by playing some regular football. 

Tuanzebe is a versatile footballer who mainly plays as a centre-back but can also be featured as a right-back as well as a holding midfielder. 

The English footballer will now play under manager Alex Neil at Stoke who are currently 18th in the Championship.
