Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns striker Jeremy Brockie has been absent from pre-season training as he is back in New Zealand attending the funeral of his grandfather.

Sundowns' management gave the Kiwi international the time off to deal with the bereavement but he is expected to report back to Chloorkop sooner rather than later.

Brockie, affectionately known as Sniper, has been linked with a move away from the Brazilians after falling out of favour under coach Pitso Mosimane.

The arrival of Mauricio Affonso means there is intense competition for the number nine role for the 2016 African champions.

The 31-year-old has not been able to replicate his prolific form where he made his name with SuperSport United, and while he will return for pre-season in the coming days - it seems his future lies away from Downs.

At this stage, it is uncertain as to which teams are interested in his services.
