SuperSport seek out Phungwayo

Posted: 31 August 2017 Time: 12:33 has learnt that SuperSport United could swoop on former Orlando Pirates defender Patrick Phungwayo.

Phungwayo, who is also on Free State Stars' radar, is a free agent after ending a five-year spell with Pirates earlier this week by 'mutual consent'.

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.
