"There is big money put in front of Khama Billiat. I suspect it will create a reign of confusion," the source tells KickOff.com.

"Pedro de Launda is now the latest club to come forward and offer a big deal for Billiat. It's big dollars and tax free. It's very interesting if Kaizer Chiefs will be tempted to sell him. He is also on a big contract there."
