Report: Borman to play in South Africa
Former Red Bulls defender-midfielder Danleigh Borman will play for SuperSport United in South Africa this season, according to www.soccerladuma.za.co.
Borman, who most recently played with Toronto FC before he was selected by the New England Revolution in the MLS re-entry draft, has been on trial with the team along with Mark McCarthy, the younger brother of Orlando Pirates striker Benni McCarthy.
But the website reported a source said a deal was imminent.
“They’re both on trial at the minute, it looks like it’s going to happen," a source told www.soccerladuma.za.co. "They’ll be with SuperSport for the space of this week.”
Borman was traded by the Red Bulls along with midfielder Tony Tchani for Canadian international midfielder Dwayne De Rosario last April 1. De Ro subsequently was dealt to D.C. United for Dax McCarty.
The 27-year-old Borman made himself a valuable member of the Red Bulls during his three-year plus tenure with the Major League Soccer club. After standing out as a left-sided midfielder at the University of Rhode Island, Borman also played left fullback for the team, acquitting himself well.
A native of Cape Town, Brown will play SuperSport United, which is located up north in Pretoria.
