Manchester United defender Phil Jones is still uncertain whether to join French side Bordeaux or not.
Jones has strongly been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this month on a loan deal with Bordeaux having shown interest in his services.
While United would not charge any loan fee for the player as they aim to Fastrack his fitness, Daily Mail reports that the deal is in the balance with the Englishman set to make a final decision on Monday.
After excluding former Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny from their first-team squad, Bordeaux signed 34-year-old Brazilian defender Marcelo from Lyon on Friday but wants to add another versatile defender.
Bordeaux will try to do a final attempt today to change Phil Jones’ mind, after English defender turned down the proposal to join Bordeaux on loan from Man United. 🇫🇷 #MUFC
Seems still difficult for Bordeaux – the other option is Andreas Maxsø from Brøndby. #DeadlineDay

Fabrizio Romano reports that the French side will be making another attempt to sign Jones on Monday but should the defender insist on staying at Old Trafford, the club will move for Brondby defender Andreas Maxso.
Jones returned from injury this season after a long layoff and it is believed that his versatility in defense and in defensive midfield is something that Bordeaux admires.
