Cape Town - Absa Premiership side Cape Town City have released striker Lehlohonolo Majoro six months before his contract was due to expire.

The former AmaZulu, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates marksman spent a season-and-a-half with the Cape side and netted 11 goals in 41 matches, helping the club win the 2016 Telkom Knockout competition.

But although he has featured in 10 matches in the current campaign, Majoro has fallen out of favour and did not play in City's final few matches of the year.

"As one of the founding members Major will always have a special place at this club," read a club statement.

"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."

The 31-year-old will now be free to join a club of his choice.
