Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has finally signed long-time target, Cape Town City winger Aubrey Ngoma

Ngoma's transfer to the African champions was confirmed on the Pretoria team's twitter account on Friday. 

"Mamelodi Sundowns have reached an agreement on the transfer of Aubrey Ngoma from Cape Town City FC. Personal terms will be negotiated as soon as he has passed his medicals at the club."

The transfer comes on the same day that the Citizens signed defender Kwanda Mngonyama from Sundowns.

The Cape club released a statement on Ngoma's departure: "The arrival of Kwanda Mngonyama also coincides with the departure of Aubrey Ngoma in a separate deal to Sundowns. Ngoma returns to Gauteng after an illustrious contribution to Cape Town City and the club thanks Aubrey for his service. 

 "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 (reported to be R8 million) and the club has begun reinvesting in new acquisitions for both the January and June transfer windows."
