- 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.
