SSU: Ball Is In Kermit's Court

Following SuperSport United's 2-0 win over Manchester City, Matsatsantsa have confirmed that they are set to sit down for crunch talks with Kermit Erasmus this week.

The 22-year-old fired in the second goal for the South Africans late on against the former English Premier League champions as they claimed an impressive pre-season win in the Nelson Mandela Invitational.

Soccer-Laduma previously reported that the player was given an ultimatum to sign a new contract with the club or go, and it is believed that Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns have all put in bids for the player.

A source close to the club had said that they would wait until after their friendly with City before sorting out the issue, while the source also indicated that they are keen to keep the player by extending his contract - which is due to expire at the end of next season.

SuperSport CEO Stan Matthews has now confirmed that they will sit down with the player this week and give him the opportunity to decide on his future.

"We're going to be sitting with Kermit on Tuesday. If he wants to stay and sign a new contract then we're happy for him to do that. If he leaves then we're willing to part ways," he said.

"The ball is in his court."
