SuperSport United announced on Wednesday the signing of Bafana Bafana international Bevan Fransman from Israeli-side Hapoel Tel Aviv, for the new season.
The versatile Fransman signed for three seasons and is expected to fill the void left by Morgan Gould, who has moved to Kaizer Chiefs.
“I am delighted to be back in South Africa,” Fransman said in a statement issued by the club.
“And to be joining an ambitious and professional outfit like SuperSport United is a huge motivation for me.”
United, the three-time Premiership champions between 2007 and 2010, lifted the Nedbank Cup last weekend.
They will also be participating in the Caf Confederation Cup next year by virtue of winning the knockout competition.
“I want to help them add to their impressive trophy haul of the past few years,” Fransman said.
The 28-year old former Kaizer Chiefs and Moroka Swallows player has been on the fringes at international level and capped 16 times since his debut in 2005.
Current United mentor Gavin Hunt coached him at Swallows during his tenure there, between 2006 and 2008.
“I have worked with Bevan for some time and he has all the leadership and playing qualities that we want and look for in this club,” Hunt said.
“It was important for us to replace Morgan with a strong leader, on and off the field.
“In Bevan, I know we have a player with all the right ingredients”. – Sapa
