The 32-year-old New Zealand international joined the Brazilians from SuperSport United in January 2018 in a fee believed to be in the region of R7 million, but has endured a rather frustrating spell on the sidelines due to lack of game-time at Chloorkop.

According to his agent, Mike Makaab of ProSport International, the club have opted against extending his client’s stay, which will see him seek employment elsewhere.

“Sundowns haven’t exercised their option and it means we will now be able to look at opportunities elsewhere for him,” Makaab was quoted as saying by Soccer Laduma.

“He will be a free agent at the end of the season, whenever that is.”

This season he was shipped off to Maritzburg United but still failed to make an impact in Eric Tinkler’s team.

During his time with Matsatsantsa, Brockie amassed an impressive 44 goals in just under a 100 matches, but scored only two goals, with two assists in 32 matches for Sundowns in a period of over a season.
