Chiefs posted a picture of Paez on Twitter, and said: "New Jersey Number 9 #Amakhosi4Life."

The Venezuelan previously wore 28 following his arrival at Naturena in February on a two-and-a-half year deal.

Paez, who has set a target of at least 10 goals in 2017/18, netted five times for the Glamour Boys last term, including in the 1-0 win over champions Bidvest Wits on the final day of the season.

Meanwhile, Amakhosi on Thursday confirmed the departure of fellow forward Camaldine Abraw and signing of ex-Cape Town City winger Bhongolethu Jayiya.
