KickOff.com has learnt that SuperSport United could swoop on former Orlando Pirates defender Patrick Phungwayo.
SuperSport are looking to shore up their left-back options following injuries to Thato Mokeke and Onismor Bhasera.
According to a source at United, the club are in contact with Phungwayo's representatives with a view to recruiting his services.
"The club is searching for a left-back," the source says. "They are short in the left-back position after the injuries to both Bhasera and Mokeke.
"Phungwayo has been identified as a capable candidate to fill in the left-back spot at SuperSport."
Phungwayo is yet to feature this season, having made 17 appearances last term.
Matsatsantsa recently bolstered their backline with the acquisition of Nigerian centre-back Azubuike Egwuekwe from Finnish side KuPS.
