Billiat Joins Downs In Rodgers Swap
08 August 2013
After months of speculation it has been confirmed that Ajax Cape Town midfielder, Khama Billiat, has joined Mamelodi Sundowns, with Eleazar Rodgers going the other way.
The Siya crew reported earlier this morning that the two clubs had agreed terms regarding the transfer and that Rodgers was likely to be part of the deal.
Now Ajax's chairman, Ari Efstathiou, speaking on Robert Marawa's show on Metro FM, has revealed that the deal has been completed, with the move going through as predicted by the Siya crew after Rodgers agreed to move to Ajax.
The lanky striker had a tough spell with The Brazilians last season after leaving Cape Town-based outfit, Santos, and will be hoping that a return to The Mother City will see a return to form.
Meanwhile, Billiat's future has been the subject of speculation for many months, with the biggest indicator that he was on his way out being the fact that the Urban Warriors didn't register him for their 2013/14 campaign.
While Eftstathiou has confirmed that the deal is completed, sources close to the club have confirmed to the Siya crew that there are still some minor aspects to be finalised, but that the completion of the deal is imminent.
The transfer fee is believed to be the largest in PSL history.
