Stoke City made €5.2 million bid for Waris
Premier League side Stoke City have made a €5.2 million bid for Trabzonspor’s Ghanaian striker Abdul Majeed Waris according to the Turkish newspaper HaberTurk.
Trabzonspor manager Ersun Yanal has agreed to part ways with the pacy forward who has only found the back of the net twice this season.
However, any deal would have to wait until the summer as Waris has already played for two clubs this season.
The latest reports follow Trabzonspor president İbrahim Hacıosmanoğlu confirming that there have been offers from England and France for the Ghanian international.
“Lille and a few English clubs are interested in signing Waris,” Hacıosmanoğlu told Turkish radio station Best FM.
Waris joined Spartak Moscow in 2013 and spent last season on loan at Ligue 1 outfit Valenciennes. The 23-year-old signed for the Black Sea Storm in September 2014 for £4.2m.
The Ghanian international has found the back of the net four times and provided two assists in 17 appearances for Trabzonspor this season.
Waris was included in Ghana’s 2015 African Cup of Nations squad but was later removed due to injury.
