Kaizer Chiefs have revealed that Venezuelan striker Gustavo Paez will be donning the No 9 jersey for the 2017-18 Absa Premiership season.

The 27-year-old previously donned the No 28 jersey at Amakhosi after signing a two-and-a-half-year contract with the club during last season’s January transfer market.

The Venezuelan striker played his part in helping Amakhosi secure fourth finish in the Absa Premiership during the 2017-18 campaign, while netting five goals and assisted a further one in all competitions.

However, the former Estudiantes de Merida striker would now like to double his goal tally from the previous year after setting a target of at least ten goals during the 2017-18 season.

Meanwhile, the Soweto giants confirmed the departure of Camaldine Abraw and the signing of former Cape Town City winger Bhongolethu Jayiya.
