Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris has sealed a six-month loan move to French club Valenciennes – as he seeks to better his form ahead of the 2014 World Cup.

The Spartak Moscow striker becomes the second confirmed Ghanaian big name move following that of Jordan Ayew – who has joined Sochaux- a day after the winter transfer window officially opens in Europe.

The 22-year-old will be looking to maintain his personal form with the loan switch due to the long winter break in Russia.

Waris is alos looking to keep active at club level to remain in the plans of Ghana coach Akwasi Appiah as the 2014 World Cup draws closer.

The Right to Dream Academy graduate has struggled to regain the same form that made him best player and top goalscorer in the Swedish top flight in 2012 since moving to Russia.

Waris however impressed for Ghana during the 2014 World Cup qualifiers – where his formidable partnership with lead striker Asamoah Gyan caused havoc in opposing defence.

Valnciennes President Jean-Raymond Legrand has confirmed the move for Waris as his sides looks to strengthen this January in their desperate battle to avoid relegation from Ligue 1.

Les Antheniens are currently 18th in Ligue 1 – three points away from safety after the first half of the season.

    Way to go, my boy.

      This Dauda guy is so desperate that he is making the wrong moves since day one. His move to Orlando Pirates was hasty. Now his hiring of the Black Stars goalkeepers trainer has proving to me why he always gets the nod. That’s also a wrong move. It looks like he’ll do anything to stay ahead of Kwarassey. This behavior of his shows clearly that he won’t mind paying bribes to get what he wants. This goalkeeper’s trainer, having accepted this job from Dauda has got himself tainted and should be fired immediately. How could a Black Stars goalkeeper be the BOSS of the goalkeeper’s trainer? He comes under Dauda’s pocket and control. That’s absolutley unacceptable. The coach gets paid by Dauda, and suppose he gets paid more than what he actually gets as a trainer. This is ridiculous. Both player and trainer should be dispensed with. With this relationship between them, how could the coach recommend or gives the nod to Kwarassey over Dauda? Shame onto them. Nyantakyi and AA should CLEAN UP such unhealthy situation out of the team. Such SLIC arrangement between them should not continue.

    thats amove in the right direction son.
    h will deinately make the mark in the rench ligue 1 because the style of Play there suits him.
    at the first place waris shouldnt had gone to russiA:
    BUT HEY WE ALLMAKE MISTAKES AND MISTAKES ARE THERE TO BE LEARNT FROM.
    he is still Young at 21 so let us hope he finds his scoring boots.
    but cameroon has lined up some strong friendly matches aginst Germany,portugal and Argentina.
    i hope the stars also get a good preperations.

  3. Words says:

    Is definitely a good move.
    He needs more playing time.
    Hopefully he can help this club avoid relegation.

  4. spellBOUND says:

    this is great news. all these loan moves in preparation for the MUNDIAL. its good to see the players doing all they can to make waves in brazil and not just satisfied with making up the numbers (unlike certain west african brothers of ours. lol).

  5. Boro says:

    This is good move. Moving to a team where you are assured of a better playing time. However, like I said to Jordan, it should not be limited to just the playing time but in addition is good performances say 14 appearances with 16 goals and 8 assists etc will be something to be proud off in going forward. Not say 18 appearances with one goal and only one assist (damn!!!).

    • papa nkrumah says:

      Come on Boro. Tell me which player in the French league has been able to score 16 goals from 14 appearances with 8 assists. Is it the expensive Cavani, Falcao or Ibrahimovic? Let’s not set the boy up to fail with such demands when he is now trying to find his feet.

  6. kuukuphilly says:

    way to go boy..

  7. Wee ba says:

    I hope fatau dauda is reading all this

  8. papa nkrumah says:

    Wow! Interesting times ahead in the French league…

  10. Not Sure!!! says:

    Hmmmm….Ligue 1 is not a good league for him. Baby jet scored 14 goals in 3 seasons there. It’s a difficult league with al these big strong fats aggressive defenders from francophone africa.

    He has to realise that if you are from Spartak and you get loaned out to a club fighting relegation…people are countig on you.

    The Average goal per game at Valencienes is 0.89 goals per game. The strikers have scored only 5 goals in 19 matches. With 19 games to go, they could score another 16.9 goals.

    Its going to be Difficult.

    people have to realise that moving to a club for just playing time does not mean you have to go to ANY league or ANY club!!!!

    Not GOOD!!!!!

  11. saaa?? says:

    Ghanaosccernet…you people are craze….I have noticed any critical remark is never posted. That is not how things work…..

    I have the right to post a critial message if it is well formulated en argumented.
