Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris rejected the chance of joining Belgian Champions Anderlecht to join Portuguese side FC Porto.

The Belgian side offered a better deal to French side Lorient, and would have received the player on loan till the end of the season before paying 10 million Euros for his services.

However, the 26 year old chose FC Porto, who can keep the player on a permanent deal at the end of the season for just 6 million Euros.

According to the GAME, the Belgian champion even offered better conditions to Lorient, being willing to receive the player on loan until the end of this season, then paying 10 million euros to exercise the right of option.

Given these conditions, Lorient was more inclined to negotiate with Anderlecht, but the will of the striker was decisive.

Waris said he preferred FC Porto, making it even more certain of that decision after talking to former champions Christian Atsu and Daniel Opare.

The striker was also pursued by French top flight sides Saint Etiene and Caen who were ready to sign him.
