Cape Town - SuperSport United appear willing to let Jeremy Brockie depart the club in January, provided he can help the club win more silverware.

On Saturday night Matsatsantsa beat Cape Town City on penalties to win the 2017 MTN8 competition, adding to the Nedbank Cup they won at the end of last season.

They could potentially have another two trophies in the cabinet before next January's transfer window as the Pretoria side are currently in the CAF Confederation Cup semi-finals, while there is also the upcoming Telkom Knockout to play for.

Win one of those competitions, and star striker Brockie could be allowed to leave, with Mamelodi Sundowns' his expected destination.

"If we have won the CAF Confederation Cup by then, we will be open to offers for Jeremy," SuperSport boss Stanley Matthews was quoted saying by the Pretoria News.

"If we haven't (won the Confederation Cup), maybe we will win the Telkom Knockout. Then we might also be open for offers. This is the third trophy he has won with us and I would like one more. And if he wants a big move, we won't stand on his way."

Matthews also said the players will be allocated half of the R8 million prize money from their MTN8 victory.

"The players will take half. R4 million will go to the players and the rest will go to our staff. What is nice about SuperSport is that when we win, everybody at the club benefits."

Meanwhile City head coach Benni McCarthy rued his side's inability to kill off their MTN8 final clash against SuperSport that allowed Eric Tinkler's men back into the game.

"We had chances to kill off the game but you know we were playing against an experienced side, they're going to ride the wave. We could see that they were playing for penalties and yeah the boys ran out of gas I guess."
