Cape Town - SuperSport United look set to sign Bafana Bafana international forward Jamie Webber once the transfer window re-opens next month.

After being spotted training with the CAF Confederation Cup runners-up this week, the club revealed negotiations are underway with the teenager's representatives.

After starring in the National First Division for the Cape Winelands based side, the 19-year-old was fast-tracked into the senior national team set-up by head coach Stuart Baxter for the COSAFA Cup last year.
