Zamalek assistant coach Tarek Yehia has revealed that his club will try to sign Sundowns’ Khama Billiat when the window re-opens in January.
The Zimbabwean’s current contract at the South African side will expire next summer, which would allow him to sign for any team for free next January.
The 27-year-old broke into the scene after guiding his side to the 2016 CAF Champions League title , scoring against the Whites in group-stage at Petrosport Stadium.
“Of course I wish to sign Khama Billiat for Zamalek. He is a great tactical player, who has a lot of individual skills too,” Yehia told Stad Al-Hadaf.
“We will certainly try to sign him. If Zamalek president, Mortada Mansour, is determined to sign a player, he will bring him whatever the temptations of the Gulf clubs,” he added.
Billiat has been at the South African giants since 2013, scoring 39 goals and providing 37 assists in 125 appearances. He guided them to two league titles, 2016 CAF Champions League, Nedbank Cup and Telkom Knockout titles in 2015 and the 2017 CAF Super Cup.
Billiat is yet to commit to a new contract at Sundowns and a move to Europe has been widely touted for some time now.
