Dean Furman (TEAMtalk)

Absa Premiership side SuperSport United have confirmed the departure of club captain Dean Furman while paying tribute to the 31-year-old midfielder.

The Bafana Bafana international brings an end to a successful spell at Matsatsantsa having joined the club in August 2015.

Furman lifted both the Nedbank Cup and MTN8 trophy on two occasions and led the club to seven finals while making 155 appearances.

CEO Stan Matthews paid tribute to the midfielder: "Dean will go down as one of our all-time great midfielders and captains. He has led us to seven cup finals and delivered us four trophies and five consecutive Top 8 finishes."

"His personal win ratio for the club has been fantastic and is matched by his leadership and professionalism on and off the field."

"Dean is a super young man that we hold with deep affection and high regard and we wish him and his wife Tash all the best as they build their new family life."

SuperSport also confirmed that Furman was in quarantine in London as he is awaiting the birth of his first child.
