Black Stars striker, Abdul Majeed Waris has disclosed that it was his priority to return to the French Ligue 1.

The Ghana striker returned to FC Porto in Portugal after his loan spell with FC Nantes last season.

However, Waris has joined Ligue 1 side, RC Strasbourg on a one-year loan with a mandatory €2m purchase clause.

After completing his move to the club, the 28-year-old says it was his aim to return to France.

“I’m very happy to come to Racing. It was my priority to come back to France. Strasbourg is a club I know,” Waris told his new club’s official website.

“I played against Strasbourg recently with FC Nantes. There is an incredible atmosphere in the stadium and I want to experience some great moments with the fans at Le Meinau. I hope to bring my qualities to a team that already has very good strikers.”

He is Strasbourg’s first signing of the winter transfer window.

Waris has been handed the number 8 shirt.
