Reports: SuperSport United Player Added To Besiktas Scouting List
Aubrey Modiba has been added to a list of potential players who could be watched or scouted by Turkish giants, Besiktas J.K, this according to reports coming out of Turkey.
According to Haberkarakartal.com, the president of Besiktas, Fikret Orman, recently paid a visit to South Africa, where he was reportedly collecting information about the Premier Soccer League.
The reports added that upon the president’s assessment, SuperSport United’s Modiba, was one of the players who was believed to have stood out for Orman, and according to the report, the 21-year-old’s name has been added to a scouting list.
“Fikret Orman, who spent his holiday in South Africa, is not pulling out of football ... Following Muhsin Ertuğral's invitation on Friday evening, he collected information about the South African League. The most prospective of the league is the name Aubrey Modiba, who plays for the SuperSport team. He added that this player should be added to the scout list to be watched," Haberkarakartal stated on their official website. (loosely translated from Turkish).
Modiba has been one of Matsatsantsa’s standout players since his arrival at the club in 2016, with the player having cemented his place in Eric Tinkler’s starting line-up, getting on the scoresheet five times so far in the current 2017/18 campaign.
Now, reports from abroad are suggesting that Modiba has been eyed by the Besiktas’ president, Orman, and it remains to be seen whether the club will look to send out scouts to South Africa to continue assessing the player and in the future, potentially swoop in for his services.
