Steve Bruce still wants to sign at least one more player before tomorrow’s transfer deadline.

Speaking yesterday, the club’s head coach said: “We have one or two things up our sleeve – I hope we’re not finished.”

It’s claimed that United have approached Lille over a loan move for 22-year-old defensive midfielder Thiago Maia.

Lille, however, are looking to sell the Brazilian this summer.
