Jones has experienced a lengthy spell on the sideline due to a long-term knee problem and made his sensational return for United earlier this month.
United interim manager Ralf Rangnick partnered the 29-year-old centre-back with Raphael Varane in defence in United’s 1-0 defeat to Wolves at Old Trafford.
Jones, who is under contract until 2023, played the full 90 minutes for United and was met with an incredible reception from the Old Trafford faithful after the match.
His previous United appearance before the Wolves match was in the Red Devils’ 6-0 thumping of Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup in 2020.
According to reports in France, Bordeaux are interested in landing Jones on a loan deal.
Transfer news expert Fabrizio Romano claims that United are ‘prepared to accept’ the loan proposal from the Ligue 1 club.
And he added that the ball is now in Jones’ court for the move to happen, with ‘confident’ Bordeaux not paying a loan fee for the United defender.
“Manchester United are prepared to accept Bordeaux loan proposal for Phil Jones. It’s now up to the player for [the] final ‘green light’ to complete the deal soon,” Romano tweeted.
“Bordeaux are confident as they’re not paying any loan fee.”

Bordeaux are confident as they’re not paying any loan fee.
Jones hasn’t featured for United since his return against Wolves, with the former Blackburn Rovers man facing tough competition for a place in the starting XI.
It was believed that United were holding out for a sizable fee to allow Jones to leave Old Trafford, with both Newcastle and Burnley linked with the player.
Jones, who has made 225 appearances for the Red Devils, has been at United for over a decade and has lifted a Premier League title, a Europa League and an FA Cup.
