Khama Billiat already has growing options ahead of the expiry of his contract at Kaizer Chiefs at the end of June.

Billiat’s season has been torn to pieces by injury and is sitting on the edge having completed his fifth year with Chiefs since joining from Mamelodi Sundowns in July 2018.

His stay at Naturena has coincided with the club’s trophy drought.

As the big decision to decide whether he gets another extension or leaves as a free agent remains pending with the Amakhosi authorities, Billiat is already faced with options though none will match his current package.

The 32-year-old is among the best paid players in the DStv Premiership with his package standing at over R7 million per annum.

Tanzania champions Young Africans have raised their hand of interest in the exciting forward while options in the Middle East remain open.

Yanga are targeting to tempt Billiat as they seek to make further progress in the CAF Champions League next season.

The proceeds that they will get from the sale of in demand forward Fiston Mayele will be channelled towards the package to be offered to the Zimbabwean.

There has already been offers in the region of USD500 000 (approx. R9.6 million) for Mayele.

In the meantime, KickOff has been informed that Billiat will prefer to remain in South Africa where his family are settled.

Billiat has been residing in Gauteng for a decade after joining Sundowns from Ajax Cape Town in 2013.

The former Sundowns attacker's return to action on Saturday against Cape Town City turned into sadness after he was pulled off within minutes of his introduction.

Before the past weekend, his last appearance was at the end of October last year against Orlando Pirates when he provided the touch that led to the winning goal.

The 2022/23 season has been the first that he has completed without a goal in 13 years playing in the DStv Premiership.

He is also three goals shy of reaching 100 while playing for a South African top-league club.
