Majeed Waris joins FC Porto on loan


The Ghanaian has joined the Dragons until next season after a failed move to England

Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris has completed a season-long move to Portuguese top-flight FC Porto from French Ligue 2 side Lorient, with an option of making the deal a permanent, the two clubs have confirmed.

The 26-year-old has been pushing for a move away from France after falling down the pecking order and reports suggested earlier that Premier League sides West Ham, Swansea City and Bournemouth had expressed interest in his services.

However, he has opted to join the Portuguese side after being promised first team action.

After making 31 appearances and scoring nine goals for Lorient last season in Ligue 1, they couldn’t survive the relegation scares but his form has dipped and could only boasts of six appearances in the second-tier including four starts and has one goal under his belt this season.

Waris will be hoping to make his Porto move count since he has been recently overlooked by head coach Kwesi Appiah as he has scored four goals in 22 appearances for Ghana since making his debut in 2012.

He was touted as one of the brightest talents to replace captain Asamoah Gyan who is at the twilight of his career.
