LEHLOHONOLO Majoro has parted ways with Cape Town City, the club has confirmed.

The former Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates forward, whose contract is up in June 2018, has been the subject of much speculation over the past few months, having fallen out of favour at the club despite being their top scorer so far this season with three goals.

On Sunday, Daily Sun sister paper Sunday Sun reported that Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy has started preparing life without the off-form goalpoacher, who last scored a goal four months ago.

The Citizens made an official announcement regarding the strikers future on Wednesday morning.

“As one of the founding members Major will always have a special place at this club,” read a statement released by the club. “He loved it like a family and over his time here he defined what it means to be a Cape Town City player.

“Major was in the last few months of his contract so rather than hold him until May, we decided to support him to find a new club where he can extend his career a few more years and get more game time. We welcome his return after football in Cape Town, and for now we wish him well.”

Majoro managed ten starts this season, last featuring at the start of December against Maritzburg United, which was his last game for the club.

Since joining from Orlando Pirates at the start of the 2016/17 campaign, ‘Major’ scored 11 goals in 41 appearances for the Citizens across all competitions, helping them win last year’s Telkom Knockout.

It is believed that the 31-year-old has begun talks with Absa Premiership Champions Bidvest Wits, and could join the Students in the January transfer window according to well-placed informants.
