SuperSport United are still waiting to hear from Maccabi Haifa regarding their loan bid for Bafana Bafana striker, Dino Ndlovu.
The Siya crew reported last week that Matsatsantsa had submitted a bid to the Israeli giants, and were keen to bring the 23-year-old to Tshwane on a loan basis.

Ndlovu has endured a difficult period at Haifa in the last few months, and was recently subjected to racial abuse by some of their fans at a training session.
The club have already let the player know that they are open to letting him leave Israel, although it remains to be seen whether they will agree with the offer submitted by Cavin Johnson’s side.
Ndlovu’s agent, Walter Mokoena, has confirmed to the crew that Haifa have received SuperSport’s offer, but says their board of directors are currently mulling it over.
He said, “Maccabi Haifa received an offer from SSU, we’re now waiting for a response from the Haifa board. SuperSport have been very professional with their proposal, I spoke to the sports director and he confirmed the offer to me. We’re hoping something can be sorted this week.”
SuperSport are hoping to sign Ndlovu on loan until the end of the season, but have entered a clause into their deal which means that, should he do well, they will have an option to sign him on a permanent basis.
Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs have also been linked with the striker, although with their recent acquisitions in mind, it seems unlikely that they will now make a move for Ndlovu.
