South African youngster Dean Furman has left Rangers for Oldham.

The 21-year-old midfielder has signed a two-year deal with the Latics, after making just one first-team appearance as a substitute in three years at Ibrox.

Furman had been offered an extended stay with the Clydesdale Bank Premier League champions after impressing during a 33-match loan spell with Bradford last season.

He told his club's official website, "I was offered a new contract by Rangers but I didn't think I was going to get as much football as I'd have liked.

"The chance to join Oldham came up and straight away I got a good feel for the club. I had my first day training with them today (Monday) and it was great.

"I feel it's time for me to move on because I enjoyed getting first-team football at Bradford last season and I was to keep progressing.

"I am confident I will be able to do that now. I've got no guarantees I'll be playing every week and it's up to me to prove I'm good enough for this team.

"That's a challenge I'm looking forward to and hopefully over the next couple of years I can give my all and establish myself more."
