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 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.
