Contract Demands: Khama Billiat Wants R36m Buyout Clause Reduced

Demands by Khama Billiat that Mamelodi Sundowns decrease his lofty €2.5m buyout clause before he puts pen to paper, may indicate the player is looking beyond the Brazilians. 

Recent reports that he was ready to relocate to Europe or Zamalek in Egypt were reportedly stalled by his hefty buyout clause.

Currently, the 26-year-old Zimbabwean has one more season left to run on his current deal at Chloorkop, meaning the club has to act swiftly to avoid losing Khama in silimar fashion as Bongani Zungu who 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.

But his career has been dogged by recent injuries, which saw him withdraw from ongoing CAF competitions and international l duty in Harare.

Media reports say the striker has once gain ignited interests from Russian and Egyptian clubs, and his representative, Edzai Kasinauyo, says that he’s currently weighing up the different options available to him.

“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,” said some sources to Soccer Laduma.

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. - Online Sources
