Agent confirms talks between SuperSport United, Sundowns and Orlando Pirates for Jeremy Brockie

Bucs will have to beat the Brazilians to the 30-year-old's signature during the current Transfer Window

Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns are competing for SuperSport United striker Jeremy Brockie's services.

The New Zealand international has been on the radar of Sundowns since last season and they have now been joined by Pirates, who are keen to beef up their striking department.

Mike Makaab of Prosport International, who is Brockie's agent, has confirmed that talks are ongoing between SuperSport, Sundowns and Pirates. 

“Yes, there is interest from Sundowns and Pirates in Jeremy," Makaab told Independent Media.

"The two teams have been in talks with SuperSport United for weeks now. Jeremy is still contracted to SuperSport United, and it is all up to SuperSport if they want to sell him or not,” he added.

The respected local football agent also confirmed that there is interest in Brockie from overseas teams. 

“There’s interest in China and Middle East in Jeremy, but his buy-out clause is applicable in June," he continued.

"It is going to be difficult for him to leave and go overseas now. He can only move locally. He doesn’t have a buy-out clause for local teams,” Makaab concluded.

Brockie, who won the 2017 Caf Confederation Cup Golden Boot, has established himself as one of the best strikers based in Africa.

Pirates chairman Irvin Khoza has already revealed that the Soweto giants will be looking to sign a striker during the current Transfer Window.
