As reported in the latest Soccer Laduma, issue 1059, the Downs star turned down a move to join a club in Cyprus. There is still no change regarding Billiat’s future at Sundowns, as his contract with the club is set to run out its course.

The player’s deal with the Chloorkop outfit will expire in June and the talented Zimbabwean continues to impress for coach Pitso Mosimane and the team. The 27-year-old earned Mosimane’s side the all-important winner with the volley he scored in their 1-0 victory over Cape Town City last Friday.

As Billiat’s future has been one of the hottest talking points in the local football scene for over a year, he has been linked with an exit from the Chloorkop-based outfit. According to sources, the player turned down a move to Cyprus last month. The deal tabled with one of the top clubs on the island was a lucrative one, according to the source.

It is understood that the player is weighing up is options, as he has the opportunity to sign with a team on a free at the end of the season and the star player will not be short of possibilities. So far, Downs have tried without success to convince the player to extend his contract with them, though indications are that they have not given up just yet.

There are indications that Downs will try and convince Billiat to sign a new deal at the club and avoid losing him on a free in less than five months’ time. The Brazilians were believed to be wanting to sell Billiat for over R30 million and are now facing the prospect of losing him on a free.
