University of Pretoria face stiff competition from Platinum Stars for the services of SuperSport United duo Michael Morton and Thabiso Nkoana.

Stars are interested in signing the pair who were offloaded by Matsatsantsa a Pitori this week, but Dikwena are said to be more keen on Morton than Nkoana.

Sources close to Stars said Morton has an admirer in Cavin Johnson, the Stars coach. In fact, Morton signed for SuperSport during Johnson’s tenure at the Tshwane side.

“Thabiso may join Tuks because he will be closer to home than when he leaves for Stars or another team,” a source said.

Nkoana spent the past campaign on loan at Ajax Cape Town and the Urban Warriors were interested in bringing him on board, but they were apparently scared off by his price tag.

Ajax coach Roger de Sa has been vocal about the player’s good attitude while at Ajax.
