Cape Town City FC confirmed on Thursday evening that forward Ayanda Patosi has departed the club for Persian Gulf Pro League side, Esteghlal FC.
Patosi joined the Citizens from Belgian club KSC Lokeren in 2017, and after taking some time to adapt he made his mark in Cape Town by helping his side lift the MTN8.
Patosi played 45 games for City, where he scored 11 goals while also providing nine assists in his time at the club.
City confirmed the move with a statement on their twitter account.
‘We would like to express best wishes in the next step for Ayanda. When we signed Patosi from Belgium in 2017, a move back overseas was always part of our commitment to the player.
‘During his two seasons at the club, Ayanda made significant contributions with two back-to-back cup finals and the MTN8 Cup trophy this season. He has a special connection with the club and its supporters.
‘We wish Ayanda well in his new journey overseas and we look forward to welcoming one of our own back in Cape Town soon,’ concluded the statement.
