Khama Billiat (Gallo)

Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat has drawn interest from a number of teams in North Africa following his fine individual performances for Zimbabwe at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Despite the fact that the Mighty Warriors were eliminated in no uncertain terms, Billiat was still able to sparkle at times on the ball and it caught the attention of some major clubs on the continent.

In addition, the 28-year-old scored into the double-figures in all competitions in 2018/19 meaning he is an attractive proposition as a player.

His agent Michael Ngobeni said: "Of course all the big clubs in Egypt wish to have him still.

"I'm overwhelmed with phone calls from Morocco, Tunisia also. I told them they must contact Kaizer Chiefs, he is not a free player, he is employed.

"The boy was in AFCON and he did very well although the team was eliminated early. But yes I'm seized with phone calls you know, I'm seized with phone calls...Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia...Casablanca and all those clubs, they did contact me but at the end of the day for from side I can't say anything because they must talk to Chiefs.

"If Chiefs say they are ready to sell it's up to Chiefs and I can then speak with my client if he's comfortable going there. So I don't know whether they are discussing with Kaizer Chiefs, yes or no."
