Cape Town - SuperSport United boss Stanley Matthews has reiterated his stance that he won't allow Jeremy Brockie to leave in the January transfer window.

Brockie is wanted by crosstown rivals Mamelodi Sundowns and, during the off-season, the New Zealand international striker made no secret of his desire to join the 2016 African champions.

But speaking a few weeks ago, before SuperSport beat Cape Town City in the MTN8 final and lost to TP Mazembe in the CAF Confederation Cup final, Matthews had promised Brockie would be free to leave once Matsatsantsa had added two trophies to their cabinet.

With only half that goal achieved, the SuperSport CEO says that Brockie, who scored 10 goals in the Confederation Cup, will not get the green light for a move.

"I can't let go of one of our key players," he 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."

The 30-year-old CAF African Player of the Year nominee has scored 41 goals and registered 15 assists in 97 games since arriving at Matsatsantsa from Wellington Phoenix two years ago.

Matsatsantsa next face second-placed Orlando Pirates at the Orlando Stadium on Wednesday evening in an Absa Premiership clash with Eric Tinkler's side in 10th spot, although having only played six games compared to the 12 of leaders Baroka FC.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
