Billiat’s contract with Sundowns is set to expire in June, and there are rumours that he is stalling on a new deal in order to leave for free after the expiry of his Sundowns deal.

“The talks are in still in progress with Sundowns,” Loyilane told IOL.

“It is not true that Billiat doesn’t want to renew because he wants to leave for free. People must understand that contractual issues are not easy. There are terms and conditions that we have to take into consideration.”

Loyilane added he and the client were in no rush to sign a new deal with Sundowns.

“There is still time, we are not in a hurry. The player is happy at Sundowns. Did you see the goal he scored this weekend? Does it suggest he is not happy? Of course not.”

Loyilane said teams that were interested in Billiat must talk to Sundowns first because he was still contracted to the club.

“Teams must respect Sundowns. Billiat is still contracted to Sundowns, and if teams want him, they must talk to them. Sundowns deserve respect. If Billiat is to leave Sundowns, both parties need to be happy. Sundowns must get what is due to them,” concluded Loyilane.
