Zimbabwe Warriors winger Khama Billiat’s exploits at AFCON 2017 have not gone unnoticed despite Warriors’ early exit, according to top United Kingdom tabloid Daily Mail.
The tabloid has earmarked Khama Billiat for a move to the Premier League.
The Africa Nations Cup has, over the years, afforded a stage for African players to break into European Leagues, particularly England. Khama Billiat, among the other African stars, is in line for a move.
Though he possesses a small frame, The Daily Mail suggests that he has the ability to adapt to any league because of his skills.
At 26, Billiat is probably too old to be signed as one for the future. He is fairly lightweight, and would probably take time to adapt to the English game. That said, his ability to cope with some dreadful pitches in Gabon, and still trick his way past opponents suggests he is more than capable of adapting quickly –Daily Mail.
He will, however, be suited for middle table teams, suggests the Daily Mail.
Probably not a top Premier League side, but a mid-table club looking for a versatile goal-threat could consider Billiat to be worth a try. There is reported interest from clubs in the French and Belgian top flights, but don’t rule out a move to England down the line.
Other players of note so far in the tournament Denis Bouanga (Gabon), Christian Bassogog (Cameroon), Junior Kabananga (DR Congo), Keita Balde (Senegal), Thomas Partey (Ghana and Ahmed Hegazy (Egypt).
