Khama Billiat has described the reports suggesting that he was no longer interested staying at Kaizer Chiefs as mere social media speculation.

The 29-year-old commented on these rumours for the first time on Friday ahead of the Shell Helix Ultra Cup.

The reports linked him with a return to Mamelodi Sundowns who were said to have secretly contacted the player in the August transfer window, a development which led Chiefs to sound a warning to their rivals.

“I can’t confirm that [they contacted me] because I don’t know what was happening. I didn’t get anything to my phone and everything [I know] I just read on social media,” revealed Billiat, according to

“Like I said, I don’t know what was happening, and I just thought it was rumours.”

The Zimbabwe international says he is happy at Amakhosi and will try to enjoy his time there.

“I’m happy, this is my home and I have to make my environment as best as I want it to be – it’s exactly what I hoped for and I just hope it will be like this forever,” he added.
