Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris has still not returned to Lorient training amid transfer speculation.
The 25-year-old striker was scheduled to return to the Espace Kerlir for Lorient’s pre-season training on July 24 but the Ghanaian failed to turn up.
The former Hacken striker’s absence fuelled speculation that he may be departing from the club as he favours a move to a top flight league.
He is the subject of reported interest from Turkish outfit Bursaspor, having scored nine Ligue 1 goals for Lorient last term but his efforts were not enough to save the club from facing the drop to Ligue 2.
The speedy poacher is not the only player keen on a move away from the club as his compatriot Alhassan Wakaso, Walid Mesloub, Cafu and Lindsay Rose no longer appear to be part of the club after missing their Saturday’s Ligue 2 opener.
Le Merlus were held to a 1-1 stalemate against against Quevilly-Rouen in the Ligue 2 opener last Saturday.
