Cape Town - The agent of clubless Bafana Bafana midfielder Dean Furman revealed his client will not move to a team in the PSL.

Furman was released by English League One side Doncaster Rovers at the end of the season after failing to agree a new deal.

Speculation began to circulate that it had been Doncaster's decision to let the player go, suggesting his career in Europe was over.

However, the player himself stated he felt he had achieved everything he could with Rovers and was keen for a new challenge.

Regardless of the reason, several clubs back home joined the race for his signature, but their hopes of bringing Furman back to South African shores were shattered by his agent, Glyn Binkin.

Binkin revealed there had been substantial interest from clubs in Mzansi but stressed Furman wanted to remain in Europe for the foreseeable future.

"Although there has been a lot of interest from South African clubs, Dean will remain in Europe to further his career," Binkin told the Daily Sun.

SuperSport United, Bidvest Wits, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates were reportedly all courting Furman after he became available.

Neither Furman nor his agent disclosed if there were any offers on the table from European club's as yet or even which country in Europe he might be plying his trade next season.
