The Urban Warriors and Sundowns have reached an agreement for the transfer of the player to Chloorkop, but the player himself is yet to agree to personal terms.

Ajax chairman Ari Efstathiou said Billiat must make up his mind today as they want to end the saga that has drawn on for weeks.

“Everything is done between us and Sundowns and what’s only left is the individual. He must agree with them as he is coming back from Zimbabwe,” Efstathiou said.

Billiat told Zimbabwean media that the deal is almost complete and that it’s only a minor thing or two before he agrees to sign.

“Just the finer details of my personal terms and my manager is working on that issue. It is more to do with my signing on fees and monthly salaries,” Billiat said.

“It has not been easy for me in the last couple of days as the media has been awash with things I did not say. It is becoming dreadful to pick up the phone and speak out as I am doing now.

“I really have to be strong and act maturely,” he said.
