“He has gotten used to the conditions here and was beginning to enjoy it when this happened. He didn’t fight his exit because he felt he wasn’t getting enough game time anyway. He is hoping to find another club here and continue his football and prove himself,” said the source.

There have already been rumours linking Paez with a move to former coach Steve Komphela’s Golden Arrows next season.
