Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns forward Khama Billiat is in no hurry to extend his stay at the club as he continues to eye an overseas move.

It was thought that the Zimbabwe international could leave 'Downs during the off-season, but having failed to find an overseas move he was hoping for, the player remains with the African champions for now.

The 27-year-old's contract is set to expire in June 2018 and the Brazilians risk losing one of their top stars on a free transfer.

According to Billiat's agent, the former Ajax Cape Town and Chicken Inn winger is content to bide his time regarding his next club.

"He has not signed anything with Sundowns," Siyabulela Loyilane told KickOff website.

"The deal is not close and is not far. Everything is on hold and the player is just chilling.

"There was interest (from Saudi Arabia) but the deal fell through. He is now 27 years old and Khama deserves a good deal for his life in the next three years.

"There is no chance for a local team. If he doesn't get a deal overseas, he might as well remain with Sundowns."

Billiat reportedly cost Sundowns in the region of about R8m when they bought him from the Urban Warriors.
