Tembo’s SuperSport United set to lose their captain

SuperSport United captain Dean Furman will leave the club at the end of this season when his contract comes to an end.

The 31-year-old is eying a return to the UK and United’s executive is aware of this development.

“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 returned to South Africa in 2015 and joined SuperSport after leaving Doncaster Rovers.

Meanwhile, the newspaper also claims that coach Kaitano Tembo is already making plans to secure the midfielder’s replacement in the January transfer window or before end of the season.
