Cape Town - Veteran midfielder Dean Furman has confirmed that he will leave SuperSport United at the end of the season to head back to the United Kingdom.

The 31-year-old's current contract with Matsatsantsa is due to expire when the 2019/20 season comes to a close and he has now revealed that it will mark the end of his five-year spell at the club.

Furman left League One side Doncaster Rovers in 2015 after a two-year spell before joining Matsatsantsa while winning 56 caps for Bafana Bafana.

"My contract is up at the end of the season and the thinking is to go back overseas," Furman told Daily Sun.

"I haven't had a talk with SuperSport. But I think they know my position and mostly at the end of the season, I'll be going back overseas.

"I'm sure I'll have a chat with the CEO (Stan Matthews) and the chairperson (Khulu Sibiya), but yes I'm going back to the United Kingdom."

Furman went on to assure SuperSport fans that he remains fully focused on the current campaign despite his plans to head back overseas.

"There's no one, in particular, I'm speaking to at the moment. My focus is here at SuperSport until the end of the season," he added.

"We're in a good position in the league. We just took the MTN8, we sitting nicely in the league.

"So whatever happens for me next season my focus is purely at SuperSport until the end of the season."
