DURBAN – Mamelodi Sun­downs for­ward Khama Billiat has parted ways with his agent Siyab­ulela Loy­i­lane af­ter she failed to se­cure him a Jan­u­ary trans­fer.

Hav­ing achieved just about all there is to win in the lo­cal game, the Zim­bab­wean was des­per­ate to ful­fil his dream of play­ing in Europe.

But that move failed to ma­te­ri­alise de­spite the fact that Billiat was en­ter­ing his last six months of his con­tract with Sun­downs. Loy­i­lane told In­de­pen­dent Me­dia that she doesn’t work with Billiat any­more. “Billiat is no longer my client. We ter­mi­nated our re­la­tion­ship a few days ago. I don’t know who he is work­ing with now,” Loy­i­lane ex­plained.

Asked if they parted ways be­cause he failed to move Billiat in this win­dow Loy­i­lani agreed.

“Yes, that is the main rea­son why we de­cided to end our re­la­tion­ship, and I don’t know what to say more than that. “Billiat has re­dis­cov­ered his form and scored a scorcher for the Brazilians last week­end to help them beat Cape Town City for the first time. The former ABSA Pre­mier­ship Footballer of the Year has also been linked with a po­ten­tial move to ei­ther Kaizer Chiefs or Or­lando Pi­rates. Last year he rep­re­sented Zim­babwe at the Africa Cup of Na­tions in Gabon af­ter par­tic­i­pat­ing in the FIFA Club World Cup with Sun­downs in 2016.
