Furman joins League two side


South African midfielder Dean Furman has signed with English league two side Carlisle United.

Furman has penned a one-year-deal with the club after a successful trial with the club.

The 32-year-old returned to England after 5 years having left Doncaster Rovers to play in the Absa Premiership with SuperSport United.

“I was aware of Dean when he moved to Oldham from Rangers years ago. As a young player he made a real impact and subsequently moved into the Championship with Doncaster,” said Carlisle manager Chris Beech.

“He’s such an intelligent footballer, with the ability to dictate a game – his retain and regain of the ball is exceptional and he adds leadership and maturity into that area of the pitch, when it’s needed.

“Dean will one hundred percent help to improve our other midfield players through the application of his work, and that’s a huge plus for me. We’ve got some real talent in the building and I’m excited to see that progress.” He said.

Furman featured in 101 games scoring 3 goals for ‘Matsatsantsa’ between 2015 and 2020.

He also made his Bafana Bafana debut in 2012 having been roped in by then-national team coach Gordon Igesund and made 56 appearances accompanied by 4 goals.
