SuperSport United are reportedly looking at signing Bidvest Wits striker James Keene as a replacement for Jeremy Brockie.
The CAF Confederation Cup finalists have been on a dismal run in the Absa Premiership, registering just one win in their last ten league outings.
In addition to their slump, Eric Tinkler’s side lost the services of striker Brockie, who joined cross-town rivals Mamelodi Sundowns.
The former Cape Town City mentor recently revealed that his side will dip into the market to replace Brockie and reports suggest that Keene could be the ideal candidate – having reportedly not been offered a new deal by the Clever Boys.
‘We are thin at the moment. We are very thin. Obviously, a striker [is a priority],’ he told the media.
‘Right now we have Kingston [Nkhatha] and a young boy Darren Smith [who are fit], and that’s too much pressure to put onto the young man to be honest.
‘We are fairly close [to signing a new player], I don’t want to mention names yet because like I said that process is still in negotiations and I don’t want things to be changing last minute and look like an idiot because I told you this one is coming in and it doesn’t happen,’ he concluded.
