The Ghanaian forward rejected a move back to the French Ligue 1 after sealing a move to the Cypriot League.

The former Lorient forward attracted interest from former club FC Nantes in the summer transfer window, but decided to take a new adventure by signing for Anorthorsis Famagusta.

Anorthosis believe the former Ghana international can help them achieve their season goals.

The 30-year-old could make his debut for Anorthosis on Saturday when they host Pafos in a league match.

Waris has previously played for Trabzonspor, Porto, Valencia, Lorient, and Nantes, among other clubs.
