Cape Town - SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews has lauded the qualities of new signing Dean Furman, saying the midfielder is filling a long-standing void in the team.

The holding midfielder was unveiled by the club after putting pen to paper on a two-year deal with the Premiership outfit.

Matthews is known to be a long-term admirer of Furman's talents, while Matsatsantsa coach Gordon Igesund gave the player his Bafana Bafana debut back in 2012.

"I don't think I've seen a more natural two-footed passer of the ball than Dean. The game is relaxed for him," Matthews told the club's official website.

"He's the type of player who we feel the club has long been missing. His leadership qualities, along with those of Bongani, will give us an edge in the PSL. He's so pleasing on the eye, it's natural.

"People might question his variation to the local game, but he's a wonderfully gifted player and I don't think there is any Bafana Bafana fan who would argue against his ability."
