Ghana international striker Abdul Majeed Waris is close to moving to Turkey as his French side Lorient and Turkish side Bursaspor are close to reaching an agreement, according to reports in France.

Lorient are suffering the rippling effects of being relegated from the French top tier and will have to sell their priced assets.

They have already seen the exit of Benjamin Moukandjo and now are content with selling Abdul Majeed Waris who was their lead forwards.

The deal could be struck by the end of this week with reports claiming that a personal agreement between Bursaspor and player has been reached.

Waris is not new to playing in Turkey after a failed stint with Trabzonspor in the 2014/2015 season.

He will be hoping that he gets it right at the second time of asking.
