DURBAN – It is unlikely that wantaway SuperSport United striker Jeremy Brockie will join Mamelodi Sundowns during the current transfer window.
The New Zealand international handed in a transfer request last week, and he also changed his flat, in case the move to Sundowns does happen.
Brockie was absent when SuperSport United drew with Maritzburg United in the semi-final of the MTN8 this past weekend.
Mike Makaab of ProSport International, the company that manages Brockie, confirmed that the striker is set to stay with SuperSport United.
“It is highly unlikely that is going to happen (Brockie joining Sundowns). It looks like he is staying with SuperSport. Eric Tinkler doesn’t want to release him. He believes that Brockie is important, since they are challenging for honours in Africa,” Makaab explained.
SuperSport United will face Zesco United of Zambia in the quarter-final of the Caf Confederations Cup on September 15 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.
Reports are suggesting that Brockie has a buyout clause of R10 million.
“The player has a contract with SuperSport United, and there’s nothing we can do if they want to keep him,” Makaab elaborated.
Sundowns have since made an offer to sign Lebogang Manyama of Cape Town City.
Masandawana are expected to loan out Cuthbert Malajila, Mogakolodi Ngele, Bongi Ntuli, Kwanda Mngonyama and Abdul Fiston Razak.
