Brockie’s Lack Of Buyout Hinders Downs Switch
Jeremy Brockie Doesn't Have A Buyout Clause For Sundowns To Trigger
The lack of a South African buyout clause in Jeremy Brockie’s SuperSport United contract could have put a spanner in the works regarding Mamelodi Sundowns’ pursuit of him.
Brockie’s name has been plastered all over the media of late after he was dropped by SuperSport and handed in a transfer request that was then rejected.
Both Sundowns and Orlando Pirates are believed to be interested in signing the 29-year-old, however, Matsatsantsa and their management are adamant that he will be going nowhere during the current transfer window.
There had been talk of Masandawana matching a buyout clause in Brockie’s contract, but as reported in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, there isn’t a local one present.
The Siya crew have been informed that the only buyout clause in the Kiwi’s current deal is one that can be activated by overseas clubs and while the amount of that clause is unknown, it is not one that can be triggered by any local outfit.
The consequence of this is that, even if Sundowns made a huge offer for Brockie, SuperSport is under no obligation to sell him and it appears that they will be sticking to their guns so that he is still with them come September 1st.
