Head coach Kaitano Tembo on Wednesday put an end to any speculation of a possible return for former striker Jeremy Brockie by confirming that SuperSport United will not be making any more additions to their squad.

SuperSport welcome Black Leopards to the Lucas Moripe Stadium in their 2020/2021 PSL opener on Saturday.

Speaking ahead of the match, the 50-year old dismissed any talk of the club making any more signings after having been constantly linked with Brockie.

"As far as new signings are concerned I think Lucky Mohomi was our last signing," Tembo confirmed.

"At the moment we don't have the budget because of the financial implications due to the Covid-19 pandemic. There are no funds for us to go out there in the market and recruit players.

The New Zealander lit up the league during his time at the club scoring a prolific 41 goals in 105 appearances in all competitions with Tembo refusing to completely rule out a return.

"Unless something really unlikely happens, for now, we'll have to do with what we have in terms of our squad."

Kick-off is at 20:15.
