Billiat has reportedly refused to sign a contract extension with Mamelodi Sundowns, with his current contract with the club expiring at the end of the season.

The Zimbabwean international joined Sundowns in 2013 from Ajax Cape Town.

“It is every player’s dream to play overseas. He sees himself playing there. We asked for the negotiations to stop because it is difficult for Khama to focus on playing while the negotiations are going on,” Loyilane told SABC sports.

Loyilane confirmed that Sundowns did not respond to an offer for Billiat.

“The offer was serious, there was an offer was on the table but it didn’t meet what Sundowns wanted for the player. I can’t really say it was turned down because from my understanding and what I was told by the club (that wanted to sign Billiat) is that there was no official response from Sundowns to them. So they took a bit of offence to that as they had written to Sundowns on a number of occasions.”
