Morne Nel’s deal with SuperSport United has been confirmed, with the club having added the youngster to their roster. The midfielder, who will be turning 17 later this month, has been nurtured at the Old Mutual Academy in Cape Town.
Nel’s form for the Safa Second Division outfit caught the eye of several PSL clubs, including Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns, with Downs having monitored the player’s progress throughout the season.
The Brazilians had their scouts watching the player during this year’s Metropolitan U19 Premier Cup that was held in Cape Town, however their cross-city rivals, SuperSport, moved swiftly to secure his immediate future.
“The boy left last week. He signed a professional contract with SuperSport United. The deal has been finalised. They were very impressed with him. They beat them (Sundowns) to his signature,” a source close to the deal revealed to Soccer-Laduma
SuperSport have already signed a number of players for next season, including the Moroka Swallows duo of David Mathebula and Bennett Chenene, as well as Thuso Phala and Enocent Mkhabela from Platinum Stars.
