Ghana defender John Pantsil is training with South African Premier Soccer League side Chippa United, according to Soccer Laduma.
The 33-year-old, who played for second-tier side Santos last season, is available to join a new club on a free transfer.
Pantsilâ€™s experience will be key for the Cape Town side who are making a return to the Absa Premiership.
ButÂ Chippa CEO, Peter Koutroulis, could not confirm the news despite speculation that Paintsil might sign for them.
â€œIâ€™m not aware of the news yet, but I will let you know as soon as I get the details,â€ said Koutroulis.
Paintsil has previously played for Charlton Athletic and Fulham in the English Premier League.
