BURNLEY have tabled an £8m offer for Ghana international Abdul Majeed Waris.

The Clarets broke their transfer record with the capture of Chris Wood from Leeds United for an initial £15m earlier today and the New Zealand international could be followed by Majeed Waris, who plays for from French Ligue 2 side Lorient.

The 25-year-old, who has 22 caps for Ghana, has previously played in England with the Nike Academy at Hartpury College and had a spell with Forest Green Rovers’ reserves, and was scouted by Manchester United three years ago.

He has played for BK Hacken in Sweden, Spartak Moscow, Valenciennes and Trabzonspor before joining Lorient for 5million euros two years ago.

Burnley have turned their attentions to Majeed Waris after making an offer of £13million to Deportivo La Coruna for their Romanian international forward Florin Andone but the Spanish club holding out for his release clause which stands between £25m-£30m.
