Egyptian giants confirm Khama Billiat interest
- Egyptian giants, Zamalek, have reportedly confirmed their interest in Mamelodi Sundowns star, Khama Billiat.
The Egyptian outfit has been among many clubs that have been interested in Billiat for some time, with the four-time CAF Champions League winners initially linked to the Zimbabwean player earlier this year.
According to reports, Zamalek confirmed that they will attempt to sign the player in the next transfer window in January. Zamalek’s assistant coach, Tarek Yehia, has been quoted as saying that his club will attempt to sign Billiat.
“Of course I wish to sign Khama Billiat for Zamalek. He is a great tactical player, who has a lot of individual skills too. We will certainly try to sign him. If Zamalek President, Mortada Mansour, is determined to sign a player, he will bring him whatever the temptations of the Gulf clubs,” Yehia reportedly told the media in Egypt.
Billiat’s contract with Sundowns will expire in June 2018. He has been reluctant to sign a new deal, with Downs seemingly having already given up on keeping him in the team beyond the current campaign.
