Nantes new-boy Abdul Majeed Waris has been handed the iconic number 10 jersey after joining on a season long-loan.

The 26-year-old will don the famous shirt after completing the move from Portuguese outfit FC Porto.

The Ghana international is expected to revive his career in the Lique after his struggles at the Dragões.

The Ghana international signed a four-year deal with the Dragons this summer but has been forced to move out after he was left out of the squad for the new season by manager Sergio Conceicao.

Nantes have stolen the march off Saint-Etienne to prize the former FC Lorient and Valenciennes striker away.

Waris struggled to churn out regular playing time when he joined Porto on loan in January making only five appearances.
