By Kwabena 'Onike' Boateng


Embattled ex-Black Stars defender, John Paintsil could join South African side Polokwane City.

The defender, who can also play as a midfielder, was in talks to join another South African side, Santos but apparently talks broke down.

“We are meeting him today in Jo’burg,” City spokesperson Patrick Baloyi told Kickoff.com in an interview.

Paintsil, who has enough experience, has played in England plying his trade with sides like Fulham, West Ham and Leicester City.

He represented the national team at all two previous World cups. However, he has been without a club after he was released by his Israeli club and he admitted finding a club has not been easy especially after news of an alleged brawl with his spouse went viral in the media.
