Khama Billiat's agent Mike Ngobeni says the player is very excited to join his boyhood club Kaizer Chiefs.
According to Ngobeni, Billiat turned down offers from teams in Turkey, as well as one from Egyptian giants Zamalek.
"Look, I'm a servant of players. I work for players, okay? So when you work for a player the player at the end of the day needs to decide. I have done my homework, I brought [to him] not one contract, not even one offer, I brought contracts and offers. He decided that no, he was certain with Kaizer Chiefs. I had to give him another two more days, I told him 'think about it [and] I will come see you in Zim'.
“I went to Zim, spoke to his mother and father. And they were certain that he wants to go to Kaizer Chiefs. So Chiefs won, I had a good one in Turkey from a team from League Two.
"What I've done was to explain to him the countries and their leagues. Players are different; some players are interested in zeros, but with Khama if you do that you will have a problem.
“Another thing he said to me was that he made consultation with [Willard] Katsande and [Leonardo] Castro, so they've been talking also and he ended up deciding.
“I can tell you the boy is excited, so excited."
