Having landed first choice transfer target Lebogang Manyama from Ajax Cape Town this month, fellow PSL teams are scrambling to keep up with SuperSport United in securing their desired signitures in January.
United will keep the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Wits on their toes as Matsatsantsa look to conclude even more business before the close of the transfer window.
Katlego Mphela and Lehlohonolo Majoro look set for January moves, with United emerging favourites to land the pair from Mamelodi Sundowns and Chiefs respectively.
And with Stan Matthews looking in a bullish mood to gather his wanted targets, Amakhosi will look to strike a deal that best suits both parties, but one which will maximise the remainder of the out-of-favour striker's Majoro's current deal.
Meanwhile, clubs have been put on high alert, after Mphela's representatives have repeatedly expressed their desire to find a new club for the former Bafana Bafana hitman.
SuperSport have long been admirers of Mphela and with Sundowns' reluctance to play him, United coach Cavin Johnson will be quietly confident the club will get their man, due to Matthews' keen business sense.
Also on Johnson's radar is his former striker at Platinum Stars, Robert Ng'ambi. The attacker has already attracted the attention of a number of clubs, including Pirates and AmaZulu, who are both keen on securing a deal early in the new year.
