Billiat's Downs Talks Stall, Wants R36m Buyout Reduced

Khama Billiat is happy to extend his stay at Mamelodi Sundowns, however, wants the club to decrease his hefty €2.5m buyout clause before he puts pen to paper.
 
 
The 26-year-old has one more season left to run on his current deal at Chloorkop, and the club is trying to move quickly to avoid a similar situation to when Bongani Zungu left for Portugal on a free transfer recently.  
 
Billiat has been in fine form for the club since his move from Ajax Cape Town, playing a vital role as they have won several domestic trophies as well as both the CAF Champions League and Super Cup.
 
As reported in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, the attacker does have interest from countries such as Russia and Egypt, and his representative, Edzai Kasinauyo, says that he’s currently weighing up the different options available to him.
 
The told the Siya crew, “Look, Khama is not unhappy at Mamelodi Sundowns. He loves the club and has grown a lot as a player under Pitso Mosimane. 
 
“However, Khama is approaching his 27th birthday and we need to make sure that the next contract that he signs is the right one for him and his career. You know that there are clubs who are interested but Sundowns want to keep him. He is considering his options.
 
“We want to get his future finalised as soon as we can, but we have to make sure that whatever happens, it is the best situation for him personally.”
 
Billiat currently has a buyout clause of €2.5m (R35.8m) in his contract with Sundowns and it is thought that, while Billiat is open to putting pen to paper on a new deal, he will be bargaining to reduce that in order to keep the door open for a move overseas.
