Former scout Floyd Mogale has urged Mamelodi Sundowns to snap up emerging talents Ethan Brooks and Ashley Du Preez.

TS Galaxy midfielder Brooks and Stellenbosch FC winger Du Preez have both been in scintillating form for their respective teams this season.

Brooks has already made a claim for a starting position in a youthful Bafana Bafana side with impressive recent displays.

Du Preez was also named as Man of the Match as Stellenbosch beat Cape Town City by 3-0 in an emphatic Cape Town derby win on Sunday.

Mogale has since recommended both players for the Brazilians as future stars.

"Remember I was at Sundowns for 10 years so I know the culture and the philosophy," Mogale tells

"Both fit the profile of the kind of players who deserve to play for Mamelodi Sundowns.

"Brooks is one for the future, he is quality. He is intelligent, has good technique and can eliminate players.

"You can only see his best qualities when playing for Bafana Bafana because he is surrounded by many other good players."

Mogale also added that the Stellenbosch winger would add value with his unique attributes.

"Du Preez is a modern winger with speed, who can also eliminate players," Mogale added.

"Players like Eric Mathoho and Daniel Cardoso always find it hard to deal with players with speed.

"Sundowns need a player like Du Preez to compliment Thapelo Morena on the right flank."
