English side Hull City reportedly wants Mamelodi Sundowns striker Katlego Mphela

Hull City manager Steve Bruce is reportedly interested in the services of Sundowns striker Katlego Mphela

Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana striker Katlego Mphela could be lost to South African football if media reports in England have anything to go by.

Mphela has reportedly caught the eye of Hull City manager Steve Bruce who is seriously looking to offer the 28-year-old forward a permanent deal.

However, the English side hasn’t made any formal approach for the player rated very highly by manager Steve Bruce.

Hull City has reportedly failed to sign a few European-based strikers including former Tottenham Hotspur’s Darren Bent, and therefore leaving Mphela as their next target.

Mphela’s dream has always been to return to Europe, and although he had a chance to attend trials in Europe a few seasons ago, he hasn’t been so impressive.

He spent a week with the Scottish side Celtic during the 2010/2011 season, but the proposed move did not materialize and he had to come back to his club.

Although Mphela didn’t produce the same performance that earned him the nickname “Killer” last season, he is still amongst the best finishers in the PSL.

Mphela has scored 46 goals in 110 appearances since joining the Brazilians from SuperSport United, and he is nine goals away from becoming Bafana’s all-time goalscorer.
