Soccer-Laduma can confirm that the Khama Billiat, Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns soap opera is still running with the revelation that the Brazilians and Billiat are still in talks.
As reported by Soccer-Laduma on Thursday, the Urban Warriors had declared that the deal between themselves and Sundowns over the transfer of the Zimbabwe international was off due to the length of time it had taken for Sundowns to try and agree personal terms with the player.
Despite this declaration though, the Siya crew can confirm that Billiat and his representative, former Ajax midfielder Edzai Kasinauyo, are still in talks with Sundowns and very close to agreeing terms.
When the Siya crew spoke to Ajax director Ari Efstathiou, he said, "As far as we are concerned the deal is off. Our deadline has passed.
"However, if Billiat, his agent and Sundowns come to an agreement on terms, then we may reconsider. But at this stage the deal is off."
Soccer-Laduma also understands that the offer from Belgian Pro League outfit Club Brugge is still on the table.
