Grobler has been a long-time target of The Buccaneers and has publicly declared his interest in a move to Soweto, with a move falling through last year.

However, SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews also stated recently that he could now be ready to consider selling players such as Aubrey Modiba and possibly others due to the financial impact of Covid-19.

Both Ntuli and Grobler were among the top scorers in the 2019/20 Absa Prem season – see the final standings below
