In news that was broken by Soccer-Laduma on Saturday, Mamelodi Sundowns have now confirmed that Ajax Cape Town winger, Khama Billiat, has signed a five-year deal with the club.
The Siya crew broke the news after weeks of ongoing negotiations, which included a number of twists and turns.
Siya sources have since indicated that the the final agreement saw Billiat joining the Chloorkop-based side in a deal worth R6.5 million and the loan spell of Eleazar Rodgers, who will be with the Cape-based side for one season.
Sundowns spokesman Kabelo Mosito told the club’s official website, “It is great to have a player of the calibre of Billiat on board, and clearly competition for a starting berth will be massive. This can only lead to a competitive spirit that is so critical in any team.”
Meanwhile, Ajax Cape Town Director, Ari Efstathiou, told Ajax’s official website, “Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns re-engaged and agreed to re-instate the terms of the agreement between the parties involved.
“Khama has agreed to the personal terms offered by Sundowns and as a result Eleazar Rogers will be reporting to Ikamva tomorrow morning.”
