English side West Ham say they are yet to decide whether to sign Ghana captain John Mensah who has been on trial with the club.
Trialists Mikael Silvestre, Mensah and Anthony Vanden Borre are training with West Ham over the past few weeks in an effort to win deals at Upton Park.
Even though the transfer window is shut Mensah can still join the club as he is a free agent but Hammers boss Sam Allardyce says he is yet to decide on the Ghanaian’s future.
“They have been training with us but there is no decision on whether we will be pursuing their services or not at this moment in time,” Allardyce said.
Mensah, 29, recently had his contract with Lyon terminated by mutual consent after making just a single domestic appearance last season.
The Ghana international is well versed in English football having spent two seasons on loan in the North East with Sunderland but struggled with injury problems on Wearside, with the club opting against making the deal permanent.
Mensah had been linked to Hull City, which would see a reunion with former Sunderland manager Steve Bruce, while Scottish champions Celtic have also been credited with an interest.
However it now seems that West Ham, who signed 11 new players in the summer, are keen to add Mensah to their squad, with the feeling being mutual according to his agent.
