Former Ghana captain John Paintsil is training with Santos again after he failed to agree terms with Premiership rookies Polokwane City.
People's Team chairman Goolam Allie and team manager Yusuf Gester were, however, tight-lipped when asked if there were plans afoot to try and sign the 32-year-old for the National First Division outfit.
Allie told KickOff.com on Thursday afternoon: "John is training with us, and we're very impressed with his attitude. That's all I can say at the moment."
Gester said earlier: "Ja, he is back with the team but I can’t tell you if he has signed with us or not."
City spokesman Patrick Baloyi added: "Yes, John is back at Santos, they called us to inform us but we are going to [later] make a statement about it."
Paintsil has played for a host of clubs in his career, including Premier League pair Fulham and West Ham United.
