SuperSport eye ex-Bafana star

2011-06-23 14:05

Johannesburg - SuperSport United is the latest Absa Premiership side to show an interest in former Bafana Bafana defender Nasief Morris.

The 30-year-old centre back has made his intensions clear that he would welcome a return home after a long career overseas.

He was last on the books of Apollon Limassol in Cyprus and is now a free agent after his one-year deal with the club came to an end.

Mamelodi Sundowns was the first club to show interest in the tough defender and it's now the turn of their cross-town rivals to express their desire to sign the player.
 
A reliable source close to the player revealed to the Siya crew that SuperSport has shown serious interest in the former Santos player and that a deal could be concluded soon.
 
With Morgan Gould’s future still hanging in the balance because of his interest in moving abroad, Morris would be suitable replacement if they lose their stalwart central defender.

    Probably the most consistent central defender we have had in the past 8 yrs, but never really been given the opportunity to settle in that role

    He will be at home there, it is a retirement team.Remember Zuma has signed a pre-contract. Gavin has always signed anybody coming back from overseas, the average age has increased substantially since Pitso left

      Absolutely right Piet. Benny is also rumoured to be on his way there. That club should be be renamed Supersport Old Age United
