Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris has revealed he prefers to stay in France beyound his six-month loan deal at Valenciennes.

The 22-year-old arrived in January on loan from Russian club Spartak Moscow.

Waris’ club career took a bit of a dive after moving to Russia on the back of an impressive campaign with BK Hacken where he emerged the top scorer in the Swedish top flight in 2012.

The Ghana international appears to have rediscovered his hot form in France – scoring four goals in eight starts for Valenciennes.

Waris now says he will want to stay beyound his loan spell in France but admits the final decision is Spartak Moscow’s to make.

“Now that I am in France I really like it here,” The Black Stars striker disclosed.

“I would like to stay for a bit longer, but I am only supposed to be here for 6 months and Spartak do still own me.

“So I just have to continue working hard and see what happens in the next 6 months.”

    Yeah France will suit his style and physique,the Russian league is a bit physical and slow.But I wonder if he can get the same cash?

    Readers have been advising you guys - Illiasu Alhasan,Inkoom, Wakaso, Rabiu, Warris- but because of money you wouldn't listen. Tell me of a Ghanaian soccer player who has moved to Eastern Europe and has not seen his career take a nose dive. Other non Ghanaian players have experienced the same downward trend in careers too. Players like Hulk and Africa's own SAMUEL Eto'o Fils. In your case though, I blame your team Hacken and your agent. If possible, try to get out of the East as soon as you can. This is from a fan of yours.
