CAPE TOWN -  Kaizer Chiefs will formally announce the signing of Venezuela striker Gustavo Paez once the paperwork has been finalised.

The 26-year-old has been training with the Soweto club for the last few weeks and is said to have made enough of a positive impression to earn a contract. His imminent signing may spell the end of the Chiefs careers of Edward Manqele and Siphelele Mthembu.

It’s thought the club is in the process of securing Paez’s work permit, although for now all Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung was offering on the matter was to confirm that the club had signed a foreign player.

“We have signed one and we will make other announcements; [he] is from outside [the country],” Motaung said at the weekend.
