Monteiro, who was kept out of the lineup because of ongoing transfer talks, is back on what sounds like a temporary basis since no deal has been reached on his transfer away from the club.
“Options are still being explored,” according to the statement released today by Sporting Director Ernst Tanner.
“The transfer market is fluid and while interest remains for Jamiro, no offers in the transfer window came to fruition,” Tanner said in the statement. “It was decided it was best for both sides to have him reintegrate with the team for training and matches at this time.”
