The former RBC Roosendaal, Notts County and Sheffield United man requested, through his agent, to end his stay at Blundell Park in order to return home for family reasons.
The Mariners initially tried to assist Cas with his personal issues but both the player and the club have decided to part ways, with the 31-year-old set to return home to Holland.
Following his decision to leave, Cas took a parting shot at Grimsby player-manager Paul Groves, claiming he never saw eye to eye with the Mariners boss.
"I told the gaffer about my situation and then we had a bit of a fall-out. We don't get along," Cas told the Grimsby Telegraph.
"If your head's not normal then you won't work right. If the gaffer asks for my opinion, then I'll give him it.
"The club told me that if I'm going they want me to go now.
"I've played my last game for the club. The manager knew on Saturday against Plymouth that it was my last game and he didn't give me the chance to say a proper goodbye to the club and the fans.
"I apologise to the fans for not giving them a proper goodbye. I had a very good relationship with them, even though I wasn't playing every time.
"I think the gaffer has lost all hope in me after Saturday and he wanted me to sign the papers yesterday (Tuesday).
"But I'm not signing anything until I've heard whether I've got a job fixed up in Holland, because I have my mortgage to pay.
"I have to get fixed up with a job and I'm waiting for some people to get back to me. If they do, I'll go in tomorrow (Wednesday), sign the papers, and go home at the weekend."
