French Ligue 1 side Stade Rennes have confirmed Ghana defender John Mensah will train with their first team.
The 29-year-old has been without a club since leaving giants Olympique Lyons in June.
"He has been a free agent since last June and club has agreed that he trains here to keep in shape," Rennes general manager Pierre DrÃ©ossi said.
Israeli Premier League side Hapoel Tel Aviv and Turkish side Trabzonspor were linked with a move for the towering defender.
He played for Rennes between the 2006 and 2008 season.
