The South Africa midfielder spent the final month of the season on loan at the Keepmoat and helped Rovers clinch the League One title in a race that went to the final day.

His contract with the Latics expired at the end of term but he reunites with former Latics manager Paul Dickov, who was appointed Rovers manager in May.

Furman began his career at Chelsea but moved to Rangers after failing to make a first-team breakthrough.

A loan spell at Bradford followed, before he arrived at Boundary Park in 2009, going on to make 131 appearances for the club.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
