Cape Town - SuperSport United are reportedly prioritising the signing of Bafana Bafana and Konyaspor attacking midfielder Lebogang Manyama.

The 27-year-old has endured a poor campaign for Anadolu Kartali in Turkey's Super League, and only made one start in 2017/18.

The player is said to be out of favour at the club, and is seemingly heading back to South Africa to play his football once again in the Premiership.

Manyama was a hit with Cape Town City in 2016/17 where he scored an impressive 13 league goals to end as the leading goal-scorer in the country.

Nonetheless, it appears SuperSport will land the player after failing to do so in the January transfer window due to FIFA rules which state you cannot play for three teams in a season.

"We wanted to bring him in January but he had already played for both City and the team in Turkey," a Matsatsantsa official told Kickoff website.

"We are busy sorting out our squad for next season and he remains on top of the list."

It appears United are looking for a reliable source of goals by signing the Tembisa-born star, having already secured the signature of Wits striker James Keene.
