Football News can exclusively reveal that Lille will not be signing attacker Majeed Waris from Spartak Moscow.
The player’s agent had been in France today to try and close the deal and had already agreed personal terms with Les Dogues.
Spartak Moscow have decided to pull the plug on the deal after they failed to secure the target they wanted on loan to cover the departure of Majeed Waris.
Lille and Spartak were close to a €4m deal for the player which would have then paved the way for Salomon Kalou’s departure. The Ivorian’s future may now take another twist.
Sources tell us that Majeed Waris “really wanted to join Lille” but he understands that this will not be happening this transfer window.
