Bucs Stride Into Brockie Race
Orlando Pirates Want To Sign Jeremy Brockie From SuperSport United
The race for Jeremy Brockie’s signature seems to be heating up as Orlando Pirates join the list of clubs vying for the chance to bring the New Zealander on board.
With 38 goals in 90 domestic games since his arrival at SuperSport United, Brockie is the most consistent scorer in South Africa at present, and has understandably attracted interest from around the country.
Mamelodi Sundowns, who had a R12m offer rejected last year, continue their pursuit of the Kiwi, while Kaizer Chiefs also made enquiries before being put off by his lengthy contract and hefty transfer fee.
Now, according to Siya sources, the Buccaneers have also shown a strong interest, approaching the players representatives as well as informing Matsatsantsa of their intentions to try and sign him.
With Sundowns and Pirates the two clubs in South Africa set to battle it out for Brockie in the coming weeks, the Siya crew has also been informed of some interest coming from the cash-rich Middle East that the 29-year-old may want to consider.
It remains to be seen whether Brockie will be leaving SuperSport in the upcoming transfer window after two and a half seasons at the club, however he will – for now – be focused on trying to help his current side clinch the Nedbank Cup trophy on June 24th.
Of the 21 different teams that Brockie has faced since moving to the Absa Premiership, he has scored against 17 of them, and both Pitso Mosimane and Kjell Jonevret are keen on getting in on the action if they can lure him away from the blue side of Tshwane.
