John Pantsil eyes Russia or Asia move

Ghana defender John Pantsil says he will not hesitate to join a club in Russia or Asia.

The right-back has been unattached since terminating his contract with English Championship side Leicester City over lack of game time.

The 31-year-old parted ways with the Foxes in May, just nine months into his three-year-contract.

Pantsil-who featured in just five games at the King Power Stadium-says he told the club he wants a way out.

“I will not hesitate to sign for a club from Russia or Asia if the opportunity comes,” the former Fulham player said.

“I cancelled my contract with Leicester City because there was no use sitting on the bench.”

Pantsil has also played for West Ham United and Hapoel Tel Aviv.
