John Pantsil Signs For South African Second-Tier Side Santos

Ghana defender John Pantsil will play in the second-tier of South African football after completing his move to Santos on Thursday. The former Fulham player convinced the technical team about his qualities after training with the Lansdowne-based side last week. The 32-year-old has been signed to strengthen Santos� bid to gain promotion to the Premier Soccer League next season. Promoted PSL side Polokwane City failed in their bid to sign the Ghana international and Santos took advantage. �We have concluded a deal to sign John Pantsil and are naturally delighted to have such an experienced player joining our ranks,� chairman Goolam Allie told the club�s official website. Santos are currently in seventh place on the National First Division table after five rounds of matches.
