"The club would like to thank Aubrey for his service to the rise of Cape Town City. When we first signed Aubrey we had an understanding that he would return to his family in Gauteng.
"We convinced him to stay an extra year, but he was unable to contribute due to an unfortunate series of injuries and surgeries. With this we decided this was the time for his move home. We wish him the best and are grateful for the great memories he built with Cape Town City!"
"The deal had been delayed from last season in order to prepare adequate replacements and correct timing for Cape Town City. The deal comes with an astronomical transfer fee and the club has begun reinvesting in new acquisitions for both the January and June transfer windows," the club revealed on their officiai Twitter account.
