French side AS Saint Etienne are in serious talks with FC Porto over Ghana International Majeed Waris.

Despite his arrival to the Portuguese giants in January, the 26 year old forward is set for a move away from the Dragao stadium.

The Greens want to augment their squad ahead of the forthcoming season and have set their sights on Waris.

Saint Etienne are looking to strike a loan with option to buy deal with the Portuguese champions.

Negotiations are at an advanced stage with only small details yet to be ironed out before the deal is made official, according to reports from France.
