Furman extends Oldham stay

Cape Town - South Africa's Dean Furman has signed a one-year extension to his contract at English League One side Oldham Athletic.

Furman, once on the books of Chelsea and Glasgow Rangers, has skippered the side this season, one of the youngest captains in the English League at the age of just 23.

His season has been blighted by injury, but has recently returned to action and made his 100th appearance for the club in the 2-2 draw at Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.

"When I signed a three-year contract in 2009, there was an option to extend for another year,” he told the club’s website. "I am delighted to have accepted. I have enjoyed my football here and the last three years have flown by."

Midfielder Furman was called up by then national team coach Carlos Alberto Parreira for an international against Australia in 2008, but has not had a look-in since.

His career highlight came last season when he won the 2010/11 Football League's Goal of the Season award for a magnificent long-range effort against Notts County.
