Cape Town - SuperSport United captain Dean Furman believes Reneilwe 'Yeye' Letsholonyane's quality and experience will add value to the team going forward.

Letsholonyane recently penned a two-year deal with SuperSport after parting ways with Kaizer Chiefs and is set to reunite with former Amakhosi coach Stuart Baxter, who recently led Matsatsantsa to Nedbank Cup glory against Orlando Pirates, after just four months at the helm.

"Yeye, we welcome him with open arms. He is a top player. He has had a wonderful and successful career," Furman told KickOff.

"The more players of his quality that we can bring, it's great for SuperSport."

Letsholonyane and Furman played alongside each other in the Bafana Bafana engine room under former coach Gordon Igesund, and the former Doncaster Rovers anchorman is looking forward to showcasing their combination in Pretoria next season.

"On a personal note, as a player I played with him before. I know the quality he will bring to the squad as well as the other players coming in as well," he added.

"We are very excited for next season."
