Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs have revealed the jersey number of new striker Christian Saile Basomboli, who is nearing his debut for the club. 

The Soweto giants confirmed the signing of the Congolese striker last week, announcing that he has signed a three-and-a-half year deal from Zambian outfit Nchanga Rangers.

The big striker is itching to make his debut for the club and the Amakhosi supporters will be hoping that he can hit the ground running, with the club recently struggling in the final third of the pitch. Zwane's men have not found the back of the net in the three Premiership matches they have played, with strikers Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana and Ashley du Preez hitting a slump. 

Chiefs, meanwhile, will take on Royal AM at FNB Stadium on Sunday.
