Guizhou Renhe failed to agree terms with Everton's Cahill
The 32-year old Australian was spotted in the stands as Renhe took on Guangdong Sunray Cave in a cup tie on the weekend but head coach Gao Hongbo has made it clear that he attended as a guest after a potential deal to sign for the Guiyan club fell through.
"The club actually had negotiations with Tim Cahill, but failed to reach an agreement," Gao told Soccerway.
"There were some technical problems, so Mr Cahill visits Guizhou this time. We really hope he could be interested in Guiyang and our club."
