The current transfer window period has been awfully quiet, but Siya sources have informed the crew of a looming departure for an attacker that seems to have lost his mojo.
Evans Rusike has not featured at all in the new year for SuperSport United and there are suggestions he could very well be on his way out of the club.
At the request of Mamelodi Sundowns, who are participating in the CAF Champions League group stages, the Premier Soccer League agreed to adjust the second transfer window of the 2020/21 campaign – it officially opened on January 18 and will slam shut on February 15.
The initial date was from 1 February to 1 March.
It’s within this period that Rusike, who joined SuperSport from Maritzburg United around this time three years ago, could get a fresh start.
The Zimbabwean arrived after SuperSport sold their then top striker Jeremy Brockie to rivals Sundowns in January 2018.
But Rusike has not quite hit the heights expected, though he was playing more as a winger than an out-and-out striker.
In his 67 appearances for Matsatsantsa, Rusike has scored nine goals and contributed with eight assists – grim statistics for a player of his quality.
He has already been linked with his former side Maritzburg, and the return of Ernst Middendorp to the Midlands outfit should be a plus if the two clubs are to get the deal over the line in the coming weeks.
Middendorp was keen on Rusike during his spell at Kaizer Chiefs, too.
