Ghana striker Majeed Waris was left disappointed by his failed move to the Premier League, according to Lorient president Loic Fery.

The 25-year-old Black Stars attacker was strongly linked with moves to Burnley and West Ham United.

Lorient were prepared to sell if the right offer was put on the table, but nothing was finalised by the time the window snapped shut last week.

“The moment where it all got stuck, was around mid-August. We were close, at that point, with some clubs, but there were complications,” said Fery.

“Then, in the last few days of the window, it was more the work permit issues that were worrying English clubs.”

Fery added that it is his belief that Waris will bounce back and achieve his goals – especially if he performs strongly for Lorient.

“His first goal is to return to the national team. His second is to play in England,” added Fery.

“I don’t doubt that he will one day play there. I think that playing well for Lorient will help him achieve his goals.”

Turkish Super Lig side Bursaspor are reportedly closing in on a move for Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris.

GHANASoccernet reports that new Bursaspor coach Paul Le Guen has targeted the Black Stars attacker as he looks to strengthen his squad ahead of the 2017/18 season.

Waris scored nine goals for Lorient last term, though it wasn’t enough to prevent relegation from Ligue 1.

The 25-year-old has played in Turkey before, having endured a difficult spell with Trabzonspor in 2014/15.

Bursaspor club president Ali Hay has confirmed talks with Lorient in regards to a possible transfer have gotten underway.

“We talked to his coach. We want to buy him [Waris] or borrow [loan] him. We have good news,” said Hay.
