Brockie has been one of the top marksmen in the country over the last three seasons, and he's reportedly wanted by Chiefs, Bucs and Sundowns

SuperSport United have come out to confirm that they will not be entertaining offers for their prolific forward Jeremy Brockie following interest from several Premier Soccer League (PSL) clubs.

Most recently, Orlando Pirates joined the race for the 29-year-old’s services alongside fellow rivals Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns, and Brockie admits he's flattered by their interest in his services.

However, the striker refused to be drawn into speculation over a potential move, saying he will only think about his future after the Nedbank Cup final on Saturday.

“Look‚ I’m just concentrating on the Nedbank [Cup final] for the moment and hopefully retaining the trophy there‚ and we’ll see what happens after that‚” Brockie told the media.

“Yeah, it’s nice. I think when I first came to the country people were sort of saying‚ ‘What’s a New Zealander doing playing football?’,” he said

“So, to go from that to having the interest in me over the last couple of years is nice, and it’s nice to hear about the links with the big clubs in South Africa, but like I said‚ we’ve got to concentrate on the Nedbank Cup this weekend‚ and then we’ll see,” Brockie added.

Meanwhile, the New Zealand international said his success in South African football is down to a combination of him being at his peak and the South African style of play.

 “My biggest goal-scoring season before I turned up in South Africa was 16 goals. Last year was 18 and this year 17 so far‚” Brockie said.

“They’ve been my two best years in terms of consistency. I’m obviously enjoying my football and [I am] in the peak of it at the moment. I’m at the right age‚ I’m experienced enough now, and along with that‚ the style of play here in South Africa. I think it’s quite an open‚ attack-minded game and if you’ve got that sort of sniff to get in and around the box and find out where the ball is going‚ then there are definitely opportunities,” Brockie concluded.
