Cape Town - Khama Billiat's agent says the Mamelodi Sundowns star does not want to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season, but is open to all offers.

At one stage is seemed the Zimbabwean international was intent on getting a move to Europe as at the age of 27, it may be his last chance to do so before being considered too old.

Nonetheless, despite talk of Billiat leaving next year, his representative, Siyabulela Loyilane, also said they would entertain a new offer from the Brazilians, though looking at others on the table was also not being ruled out.

"The talks are in still in progress with Sundowns. It is not true that Billiat doesn't want to renew because he wants to leave for free," Loyilane told IOL website

"People must understand that contractual issues are not easy. There are terms and conditions that we have to take into consideration.

"There is still time, we are not in a hurry. The player is happy at Sundowns. Did you see the goal he scored this weekend (in the 1-0 win over Platinum Stars)? Does it suggest he is not happy? Of course not.

"Teams must respect Sundowns. Billiat is still contracted to Sundowns, and if teams want him, they must talk to them. Sundowns deserve respect.

"If Billiat is to leave Sundowns, both parties need to be happy. Sundowns must get what is due to them."
