Matthew Rusike has left Cape Town City to join Norwegian club Stabaek.

The 28-year-old was now in his last six months of the contract with City. His move to Norway was confirmed on Monday afternoon.

Stabaek head coach Henning Berg is the one who made the deal done after expressing his interest to sign the Zimbabwe international.

The striker who once played in Sweden returns to Europe after spending just over a year in South Africa.
