The youngster was in France on the weekend and attended Bordeaux's thumping win over AS Monaco.

Ilori has toured the club's facilities and is ready to sign on-loan.

De Tavernost confirmed: "I think he was convinced. He toured the facilities, met with the president, even enjoyed the match tonight!

"I am confident."
