Kaizer Chiefs insist that striker Khama Billiat is going nowhere after Mamelodi Sundowns went public this week in their desire to have the player back at Chloorkop.
Billiat left Sundowns for Chiefs at the end of the 2017-18 season at the expiry of his contract, and the Tshwane club have made no secret of their desire to buy him back.
Sundowns official Yogesh Singh was quoted in the media as saying talks with Chiefs were ongoing, but this has been denied by the Soweto giants, who say they have no intention of selling.
“Kaizer Chiefs would like to put it on record that the information being peddled in the media about the club negotiating with Mamelodi Sundowns is completely false and uncalled for,” Chiefs said in a statement.
“We can confirm that there was an approach by Sundowns during the Afcon for the services of Khama Billiat, but we informed them that we are not selling the player. Following that, there have not been any negotiations with the chairman, Kaizer Motaung or anyone from Kaizer Chiefs as reported in the media.
“We are concerned that the said Sundowns official can misrepresent us in this manner, causing unnecessary confusion and uncertainty to our supporters and stakeholders. We call on him to refrain from spreading false information in the media and respect the rules.
“Khama Billiat is committed to Kaizer Chiefs and is not joining any other club.
“Following the article published online quoting a Sundowns official, we are considering taking action to deal with the matter.
“This unethical behaviour cannot and should not be tolerated.”
BIlliat has yet to feature for Chiefs this season but could return for their clash with SuperSport United on 24 August.
