Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe has joined Stoke City on loan until the end of the season. Tuanzebe, 25, only returned to first-team training this month after a lengthy spell on the sidelines with injury and he has completed a move to Championship club Stoke late on deadline day in search of regular minutes. Sources have indicated the club considers the move a good opportunity for the player after returning from his lay-off.

Tuanzebe most recently played for Napoli on loan but he made just two appearances for the club, playing 130 minutes. The defender has made 37 appearances for United’s first team.
