Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has confirmed that star forward Khama Billiat is refusing to sign a new deal and wants to leave the club.

The 26-year-old has one year left on his current contract and it appears he wants to find a new challenge, with a move to Europe potentially on the cards for the Zimbabwe international.

"If he renews, we love him, he is a good player, but he wants to leave and he doesn't want to renew," Mosimane said after Sundowns' surprising defeat to Maritzburg United in the MTN8 quarter-final.

"What else can we do? It is his life.

"We lost Katlego Mphela, we continued and won cups. We've lost Elias Pelembe and we won cups.

"We lost Lebogang Mokoena, we won cups. We lost Ramahlwe Mphahlele and we won the Champions League. We lost Bongani Zungu and we won the league. We will lose players, but we will go on.

"But we would love him to stay, we want him to stay and I think he will stay. Sundowns are strong. I will be gone and someone else will win the league. So, life goes on."

Sundowns will shift there focus to the Premiership as they take on cross-town rivals SuperSport United on Saturday.

Kick off is at 15:00.
