Sundowns to make another bid for Brockie?

Johannesburg - African champions Mamelodi Sundowns could soon make another bid for prolific SuperSport United striker, New Zealander Jeremy Brockie

With Zimbabwean forward Khama Billiat edging closer to the exit door, coach Pitso Mosimane has admitted they are keen to sign a striker before the transfer window closes, and their admiration for Brockie is no secret. 

The Brazilians had a bid for the New Zealand international rejected last week, with Matsatsantsa CEO Stan Matthews insisting they had no desire to sell the big Kiwi, who has three years left on his current deal, but that has not deterred moneybags Sundowns. 

"We would like to get one striker up front and prepare ourselves in case Khama Billiat leaves," Mosimane was quoted by The Times on Tuesday 

"So, I would like to have another striker and you know the striker that I want. Hopefully, I can get him but it’s very, very, very difficult. 

"When I have the opportunities that we created against Maritzburg there is only one man who can solve this problem. He is a sniper, one chance, one goal, done."

The 29-year-old from Christchurch has scored 37 goals in all competitions since joining SuperSport United in 2015.
