Matsatsantsa's lethal forward will not leave the club during the upcoming transfer window

With the January transfer window looming, SuperSport United forward Jeremy Brockie will not be allowed to leave the club come the new year.

Speculation has been rife regarding the future of the 30-year-old ever since he handed in a transfer request during the 2017 July/August transfer window amidst reported interest from cross-town rivals Mamelodi Sundowns.

Although, talk of a move to Chloorkop has died down somewhat of recent times, with Khama Billiat now set to leave Sundowns, the Brazilians coach Pitso Mosimane who happens to be a long-time admirer of Brockie may look to revive his interest in the New Zealand international.

However, if Sundowns are to reignite their pursuit of Brockie, a move once again remains unlikely as the club are unwilling to sell for now. According to Matsatsantsa CEO Stanley Matthews, Brockie needs to help guide SuperSport to at least one more trophy before he will be allowed to leave the club.

Brockie has already won the MTN 8 with SuperSport this season, but after being knocked out of the Telkom Knockout Cup and suffering a heart-breaking defeat in the Caf Confederation Cup final, he is now left with only the league and Nedbank Cup to make amends before he will be given the club’s blessing.

“I can’t let go of one of our key players,” Matthews told SunSport.

“We have goals this season, which are to win two or more trophies. Brockie has to help us win two trophies and so far we have only won one,” Matthews explained.
