Orlando Pirates could be pushing to make Khama Billiat their marquee signing in the current January transfer window after missing out on both Leonardo Castro and Jeremy Brockie.

It was reported in last week’s edition of Soccer Laduma that Kaizer Chiefs have offered Billiat a pre-contract, however, Pirates are still believed to be in the race to land the Zimbabwean international’s signature. 

While it is yet to be confirmed whether the player has put pen to paper on a pre-contract with an interested suitor, the Siya crew was informed that Pirates could be pushing to make the Mamelodi Sundowns man their marquee signing, after losing out in the race for Brockie and Castro to their Premier Soccer League rivals.

The Soweto giants’ inactivity during the current January transfer window has caused many supporters to question whether the Bucs will be making any more signings during this window.

Pirates have so far only completed the signing of Diamond Thopola and Phetso Maphanga from Chippa United, however, this was announced in December last year and there has been no other confirmation regarding new signings since.

Now, according to sources in the know, Pirates could be trying to lure Billiat to the club during the current January transfer window. However, could only be if the midfielder has not already signed a pre-contract elsewhere and if Sundowns are open to hearing offers for the player. 

The Bucs have recently been heavily linked with Bidvest Wits’ Xola Mlambo and it remains to be seen whether the Soweto giants will secure the signature of both of these players before the January transfer window closes.

OPFC shouldn't sign him now, he'll be overpriced. Let him sign a pre-contract Iron Duke.

I don't think it's a new thing seeing a player destroying his talent just for little more money. Let Pitso release the player now, without any waste of time. I believe that Sundown has got enough talent than Khama Billiat. He's no longer like the time of CBD, He's a shadow of his so called talent, He's got more injuries than playing soccer. Hamba Kahle.

I think Pitsa must release Billiat now because if the player is not happy with his stay at the club the coach must release him because there will be no good results under his role

It will be the very good signing if Pirates can sign both players as we know that Billiat is the best player who usually scoring goals and Xola Mlambo is the man who can help us to claim the winning ways and the glory

It be very stupid of Bucs to sign Billiat. He is playing more or the same brand of football as Loche.They are also playing the same position, inside left,just behind the strikers. Don't fix something that is not broken. Pirates is now a well oiled machine that only need to gell.The players that are in there are capable of going places and beat the best. I'm sure Micho won't agree to this madness of buying for the sake of buy.
