Kaizer Chiefs: Free Agent Khama Billiat Goes to Amakhosi, Snubs Europe

Johannesburg - Trailblazing Zimbabwean forward Khama Billiat has signed for Kaizer Chiefs from Mamelodi Sundowns as free agent, after snubbing a move to Egyptian giants Zamalek, where he was guaranteed a $450 000 salary. 

This becomes one of the biggest transfer coups of the preseason to the 2018-19 season for Amakhosi, that includes Madagascar international midfielder Andriamirado ‘Dux’ Hasina Andrianarimanana and defender Letlhogonolo Mirwa from ABC Motsepe League team Buya Msuthu FC.

Zimbabwean attacking star Billiat was the Premier Soccer League’s Footballer and Player’s Player of the Season when Sundowns won the Absa Premiership in 2015-16.

He was the star player in Downs’ 2016 Caf Champions League victory and brings desperately-needed class to Chiefs‚ who have not won a trophy in their past three seasons.

Amakhosi had been criticised for their lack of urgency in appointing a new head coach, and while they released five players last week, they were expected to sign quality players to replace those who have left the club.

Now, the club has confirmed the arrival of Billiat on a free transfer from Mamelodi Sundowns. Billiat spent five seasons at the Brazilians, and while he was tipped to go abroad, Chiefs tabled an offer he couldn't turn down.

Billiat headlines the group of three players that the Glamour Boys have signed so far, and the Soweto giants are expected to sign more players in the coming weeks. The Zimbacbwe international has signed a three-year deal with the Glamour Boys with an option to renew for a further year, Chiefs announced.

With the PSL season set to get underway on the weekend of the 3rd/4th August 2018, changes were inevitable at Naturena, especially after going three full seasons without a major silverware.

Here is the statement released by Amakhosi:
Kaizer Chiefs have signed three new players for the upcoming 2018/2019 season. They are Khama Billiat, Letlhogonolo Mirwa and Andriamirado Andrianarimanana.

The offensive midfielder Billiat joins from Mamelodi Sundowns on a three year contract with an option of one further year.

Left-back Mirwa is signed from ABC Motsepe league side Buya Msuthu FC on a three year deal (with an option of a further year), while another offensive midfielder, Andrianarimanana comes from Fosa Juniors FC from Madagascar and joins on a two year contract with an option of one more year.

Andrianarimanana was selected as the best player of the recently finished 2018 Cosafa Cup, which was held in South Africa. “It is with great pleasure that we welcome these players into the Kaizer Chiefs family,” the club’s Football Manager Bobby Motaung announced.
