Brockie completed his loan move to the Team of Choice from Mamelodi Sundowns on the last day of the transfer window.

“It was done today from around midday. There was an opportunity for us to get Brockie for the rest of the season‚” Jettoo was quoted as saying by SowetanLIVE. “And obviously‚ a discussion with the coach (Eric Tinkler) and the chairman (Farook Kadodia) we made the decision that it was a deal that we’d look at. Then I had to come up here and get the deal done and obviously register him now. It wasn’t a difficult deal‚ I think it was a willing buyer‚ willing seller kind of thing.

“And although it’s a loan until the end of the season‚ I think Jeremy wanted to play and obviously Sundowns wanted him to play. And I think with all the chances we missed in the last couple of games‚ we needed a goal-scorer. In the last two games‚ if you went through the stats‚ you’ll see we created 40 chances and couldn’t score. So we needed a type of player who could put the ball in the back of the net. And I think Jeremy will bring that to us. I think his record in South Africa is proven because he scores goals”.

“Obviously he’s a bit behind everybody else but that will be to the technical department to get him ready. Perhaps for our next game but we will see when he can be available and we will take it from there.”
