Ghana defender, Gideon Mensah is on the verge of joining French Ligue 1 outfit, Bordeaux on loan with an option to buy.

The left-back who spent last season on loan at Portuguese side Votoria Guimaraes has returned to his parent club, Red Bull Salzberg.

The Primeira Liga side failed to sign the defender because of the asking price of Red Bull Salzburg, although, there was interest from the club.

According to transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano, an agreement has been reached with RB Salzburg for highly-rated left-back to join Bordeaux.

Mensah is expected to travel to France in the coming days to finalize the move to Bordeaux.

It will be his third loan spell since joining the Austrian giants after stints at Zulte Waregem and Vitoria Guimaraes.

Bordeaux are in the market to augment their squad ahead of the upcoming season, with six players identified by new owner Gérard Lopez. Mensah is the first player to join the club in the summer transfer window.

Mensah has been a regular member of the Black Stars since the appointment of Charles Kwablan Akonnor as coach of Ghana.

He played in the friendly defeat to Morocco in Rabat last month.
