Coach Gordon Igesund travelled to try and persuade the Johannesburg-born Surman - who began his career at Southampton - to commit his international future to South Africa but says he met with a lukewarm response.

"I believe he didn't show us the interest and passion we had expected from those wanting to play for Bafana Bafana," said Igesund.

"I got the feeling that he is not ready to commit to us so will not be pursuing that mission anymore.

Surman has been capped four times at England Under-21 level but, but under FIFA rules, is still eligible to play for South Africa at full international level should he so desire.
