Christian Ramirez has left Aberdeen to return to Major League Soccer after the Pittodrie club agreed a sale to Columbus Crew.
The Dons say they negotiated an undisclosed fee for the 31-year-old striker and wish him all the best with his move.
Ramirez moved to Scotland in 2021 and was an instant hit in Aberdeen, scoring fifteen goals in his first season.
Though he began this season with three goals in the League Cup group stages, the signing of Bojan Miovski saw him drop to the bench.
Manager Jim Goodwin said: “At his age, Christian wants to go and play regular first-team football and the opportunity to return closer to home meant this was a prospect he was eager to pursue.
“There is no doubt Christian had a positive impact during his time at Pittodrie and I thank him for his efforts.”
Ramirez added: “I want to thank everyone in Aberdeen, the fantastic supporters and those behind the scenes at AFC, for allowing me to be part of such a historic club.
“I wish everyone connected with the Dons the best of luck in the coming years, which I hope will be filled with great success.”
