Billiat To Be Included In Chiefs Announcement?
Kaizer Chiefs Could Be Announcing A Shock New Signing
News coming out of Soweto is that Kaizer Chiefs are expected to announce new signings today, as they bolster their squad ahead of the 2018/19 season.
According to Siya sources in the know, a few players are expected to be announced, with rumours coming out of the Chiefs camp have revealed that Khama Billiat could be one of the players unveiled, though Billiat’s potential arrival is yet to be confirmed by either of the parties involved.
The Siya crew broke the news of Chiefs’ interest in the Mamelodi Sundowns playmaker last year. While the Soweto giants’ interest was maintained, it was reported earlier this year - in January - that Amakhosi were looking to offer the Zimbabwean a pre-contract with the club.
Billiat’s contract with Sundowns will expire at the end of this month, on June 30, and while the speculation surrounding his future has been rife, it was reported this week that Egyptian side, Zamalek were in discussions for a big money deal for Billiat, although a move in the PSL was still a possibility!
It now remains to be seen if the 27-year-old will be a part of the new look Chiefs outfit, in what would be a marquee signing for the Soweto giants and a signing that will undoubtedly appease the Amakhosi faithful.
With the club expected to make announcements, indications are that Andriamirado ‘Dux’ Hasina Andrianarimanana will be part of the unveiling, while Letlhogonolo ‘Scara’ Mirwa has also been linked to the club.
In addition, Coach Stuart Baxter has been heavily linked with a return to Naturena as the club looks to appoint a mentor to take charge of the bench.
