Supersport United chasing after Sundowns midfielder Lucky Mohomi

Supersport United have reportedly entered talks with Mamelodi Sundowns to secure the services of midfielder Lucky Mohomi.

The Trendsetters are interested in acquiring Mohomi on a loan deal until the end of the season.

“There is keen interest from SuperSport to bring him to the club and freshen up the squad because there is no doubt about his potential‚" an unnamed source told TimesLIVE.

Mohomi has struggled to secure a place in the Brazilians' starting line-up since joining them from Free State Stars in 2016, with Pitso Mosimane looking instead to Hlompho Kekana‚ Tiyani Mabunda‚ Gaston Sirino and Themba Zwane.

His only appearance for Sundowns this season was in their 1-0 defeat to Cape Town City in the MTN8 semi-final‚ first-leg.

Sources suggest that Sundowns would be willing to part with the player - even on a permanent basis - as they are eyeing bringing in exciting Maritzburg United midfielder Siphesihle Ndlovu.

United are also said to be interested in bringing in forward Mxolisi Macuphu on an initial loan spell‚ from Bidvest Wits, as part of a move that will see Fagrie Lakay move in the opposite direction.
