Transfer News

As earier revealed by, The Brazilians have struck a deal – believed to be in the region of R8-million – with The Citizens that will see Ngoma move to Chloorkop in the January transfer window.

The deal comes off the back of defender Kwanda Mngonyama's confirmed move to the Mother City earlier on Friday, with City confirming it as a "seperate" deal. 

Ngoma's former employers have since wished him well on his new venture, 

"The club would like to thank Aubrey for his service to the rise of Cape Town City," read a club statement.

"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!"

Furthermore, they explained the reason for the delay in the move, which was rumoured to happen in the previous transfer window at the start of the season.

"The deal had been delayed from last season in order to prepare adequate replacements and correct timing for Cape Town City," the statement noted.

"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 28-year-old left-footed winger missed a large chunk of the current campaign after undergoing knee surgery in the off-season, but has since returned to notch up one goal and an assist in just three starts so far.
