The 28-year-old joined the Cheetahs in March on a three-month deal after he was given the cold shoulder at the Bulls by John Mitchell.
According to Netwerk24, Paige has signed a contract extension at the Cheetahs until the end of October 2019.
Paige represented the Cheetahs in the recent SuperSport Rugby Challenge but will now set his sights on playing in the PRO14.
“I want to get my career back on track, play good rugby and make a contribution,” he said.
Paige is one of six scrumhalves in the Cheetahs’ wider training group. They others are Shaun Venter, Tian Meyer, Zee Mkhabela, Dian Badenhosrt and Ruben de Haas.
Paige played 13 Tests for the Springboks between 2015 and 2017 but was out in the wilderness earlier this year when Mitchell excluded him from the Bulls’ Super Rugby squad.
