Abdul Majeed Waris has disclosed that it was his priority to make a return to the French Ligue 1.
The Ghana striker returned to FC Porto in Portugal after his loan spell with FC Nantes last season.
However, Waris has joined Ligue 1 side, RC Strasbourg on a one-year loan with a mandatory €2m purchase clause.
After completing his move to the club, the 28-year-old says it was his aim to return to France.
"I'm very happy to come to Racing. It was my priority to come back to France. Strasbourg is a club I know," Waris told his new club's official website.
"I played against Strasbourg recently with FC Nantes. There is an incredible atmosphere in the stadium and I want to experience some great moments with the fans at Le Meinau. I hope to bring my qualities to a team that already has very good strikers."
He is Strasbourg's first signing of the winter transfer window.
Waris has been handed the number 8 shirt.
