Kaizer Chiefs and their fans can finally be at rest now when they know that their star forward, Khama Billiat will stay in the club.

He will stay at least until January, following the close of the transfer window.

This 29-year old player has been a subject of long and complicated transfer story. His former club, Mamelodi Sundowns tried to lure him back Tshwane trough the window.

His agent Mike Ngobeni of M-Sport Management had stated some interesting information about why the deal was never realized between the two clubs.


According to Ngobeni, Khama is happy at his present position and he doesn’t want to transfer at this moment. He wants to win trophies together with this club and that is the real reason he decided to stay.

Further on his decision on Kaizer Chiefs

Billiat is currently in his second season at Kaizer Chiefs after he left Mamelodi Sundowns on a free transfer before 2018/2019 season. He was an instant hit and earned the trust of Chiefs very quickly because he helped them to win a second successive league title.

Khama Billiat finished his first season at Amakoshi as the club’s leading goalscorer. It was in the middle of a horrid season where they missed out of a top-eight spot in the league. Unfortunately, it ended without a trophy for the fourth year in a row.

Despite the situation of Amakoshi, he attracted the attention of his former club who approached the Chiefs directly. However, this player has firmly decided to stick with his team until he wins the trophy.

Not to mention, there was also interest from him outside of the country. He impressed everyone at the recent Africa Nations Cup in Egypt. However, he still didn’t get any interest in moving to that part of the world.

So, everyone can feel relief now when we know that Khama is here to stay. Khama Billiat has suffered a knee injury which had great influence on his career. Probably because of that, he feels like he owes a win to the team. That probably had a major influence on his decision. Despite that, he has quickly returned into the game to return the favours.
