New Doncaster Rovers midfielder Dean Furman is not planning on a PSL move any time soon.
South Africa midfielder Dean Furman declares he has no plans of moving into the Absa Premier League for the foreseeable future, but isn’t ruling anything out for the end of his career.
Recent media speculation suggested that the 25-year-old midfielder, who signed for English Championship side Doncaster Rovers on a two-year deal, could make a high-priced move to PSL.
But Furman claims it was just the transfer rumour mill and that his long-term career remains in England.
“At the moment I see my future lying over here,” the Bafana Bafana star told KickOff.com.
“I’ve worked very hard to get to the position where I am; I’m really enjoying my football over here and it’s a big challenge for me at Doncaster, so for the foreseeable future I do see my football being played on these shores.”
He adds: “However, football is a crazy game and just like I never thought I would be back involved with the national team, you can never rule anything out.”
Furman joined Doncaster after his contract expired at Oldham Athletic, where he was the captain, and says he feels comfortable having already spent time on loan there.
“It’s many of the same players – pretty much the entire squad from last season barring a few changes here and there – so for me settling in was never a problem,” added the Doncaster man.
“We got up to the Championship and it’s a tough league with some top, top teams and players, but we are quietly confident.
“We’ve had a good pre-season and have built up our confidence nicely and I think as the season goes by our ambitions will become more and more clear as to what we want to achieve.”
