New SuperSport United coach Eric Tinkler is planning to make minimal changes to his squad ahead of the 2017/2018 season.
The former Cape Town City coach is eyeing a defender and a midfielder to replace outgoing duo Mario Booysen and Mandla Masango.
The pair spent last season on loan at Matsatsantsa but Booysen will now go back to Mamelodi Sundowns while Masango heads back to Danish outfit Randers FC.
"We've obviously lost Mandla Masango to his club [Randers] and Mario Booysen has gone back to Mamelodi Sundowns," Tinkler confirms to KickOff.com.
"We definitely need to bring in two new players in those positions. For now those are the only positions I am looking at."
Masango managed 15 starts and five subs, contributing four goals in league and cup competitions, since arriving at the Tshwane side in January this year, while Booysen made 14 starts and three sub appearances in all competitions.
