Braafheid is a left-back who spent the second half of the season on loan at Celtic.
German giants Bayern Munich purchased Braafheid in 2009 after the Dutchman made a name for himself at Utrecht then FC Twente.
Braafheid struggled for first-team football at Bayern so sought a move to the SPL in a bid to improve his chances of making the World Cup squad.
But he failed to make a big impact with the Hoops and it is likely he will just play a squad role in South Africa.
Braafheid, who made his international debut in 2009, featured for just 44 minutes during qualification for the 2010 World Cup.
