The move for Waris means the French side Lille’s hopes of signing the Ghana star has collapsed as predicted by Ghanasocccernet.com on Saturday as they were unable to come up with the  €4m demanded by Russian club Spartak for the striker.

Waris spent the second half of last season on loan at relegated French side Valenciennes where he scored nine goals which sparked interest from several French sides in his services.

The Black Stars striker was one of the best strikers in France last season when he spent six months on loan with Valenciennes.

Waris struggled to cement a regular place at Spartak Moscow sparking his interest to leave the club for other leagues in Europe to maintain his form and keep his place in the Ghana national team.

Following his desire to leave Russian, 12 clubs turned their attention to the Ghana star who enjoyed a fairly successful loan spell at Valenciennes in the second half of last season.

Spanish duo Malaga and Granada alongside German club Hertha Berlin were all reported to have joined the chase to sign the Ghanaian.

Lens, Lille, Saint Etienne and Bordeaux were also been mentioned as interested parties.

But Trabzonspor were the only club to have met the price demands of the the Russian club Spartak Moscow to sign Waris.

    Guys let de boy be wai. Warris is getting frustrated at spartak nd dey wern’t ready 4 a loan. the French teams don’t know quality otherwise they wouldnt waste tym in gettin him. What wll u hav done if u were in his shoes. stay at spartak nd rot? sometimes u don’t know how bitter it is if u are the one eating it.

  5. Edem says:

    Great move by him, although I would have signed a shorter deal.
    He leaves Russia to stay in form and get some Europa experience and exposure.
    Bigger clubs will come calling in two or three years before his contract expires and World Cup 2018 begins, if he stays hungry and focused.
    Why don’t we support our own better? Add another black star getting Europa experience.

    It’s good move, what is need of being in a big club and warming the bench all season? I don’t care what club a player joins once he plays regularly and doing well.Learn from Asamoah Gyan .

    Trabzonspor are in the Europa league and have signed O Cardozo from Benfica along with another 5 quality players. He will excel in Turkey and move on in a few years to a top team in spain or uk. Trabzon are one of the best teams in turkey and will form an excellent relationship with Cardozo
