Moroka Swallows and South Africa defender Bevan Fransman has left the "Beautiful Birds" to join Israeli side Maccabi Netanya.
Fransman, a former Kaizer Chiefs and Excelsior Mouscron (Belgium) defender, signed a three-year deal with Netanya who beat rivals Maccabi Haifa who were keen to sign the Bafana Bafana player.
This was confirmed by Swallows boss Leon Prins who said it's a blow to lose a player of his quality.
"Swallows would like to wish Bevan the best of luck in Israel. He was a loyal servant to the club and we are not happy to see him go, but we had to honour our promise to him to let him return to Europe when an opportunity arose. We will certainly miss him," stated Prins.
Swallows already have replacements for Fransman in newly-signed Brazilian duo Davi Rancan and Vinicius Candido Da Silva who will compete for the central defence role.
Prins also denied rumours linking defender Simphiwe Mkhonza with the Birds.
Tall snake, as Fransman is known, will face fellow Bafana internationals in Israel. The likes of Tshepo Masilela and Thembinkosi "Terror" Fanteni play for rivals Haifa. - Sapa
