English Championship side Newcastle United are said to be looking to secure the services of Mamelodi Sundowns’ 25-year-old Zimbabwean attacking star Khama Billiat.
It is rumoured that Magpies are preparing a fee to be in the region of R60 million, after head coach Rafa Benitez hinted at signing an African player.
Billiat has also attracted interest from Egyptian giants Al-Ahly, so it remains to be seen whether the Brazilians will let the player go.
