Ghana defender John Pantsil confirms Santos exit

By Patrick Akoto
Ghana defender John Pantsil has confirmed his departure from South African side Santos.

Pantsil, 32, joined the Santos on a six-month loan deal but has decided to move on following the side’s  failure to secure promotion to the country’s top-flight League next season.

He has decided to pursue a new challenge elsewhere and confirmed he will not extend his deal with the club.

Before I signed for Santos, I was not playing for any club and so wanted to keep myself in shape,” he told Power FM

“No big club was ready to sign me because I was not playing.

“So I used Santos as a stepping stone. Now that the season is over, I think I have made a good impact.

“I am hoping for the best next season. Definitely I’m not going stay in Santos.”

He joined the Fish as a free agent after being released by newly-promoted English side Leicester City.
