Kaizer Chiefs Extends Contracts Of Five Players Including Billiat And Khune

South Africa Premier Soccer League giants Kaizer Chiefs have extended the contracts of five of their key players, the club has revealed.

Khama Billiat, Itumeleng Khune and Lebogang Manyama have also put pen to paper to new contracts at Naturena.

The club has also exercised their option to renew Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Bernard Parker’s deal to cover the upcoming 2021/22 season.

Billiat, who was rumored to be on his way out of the club, will stay with the Amakhosi for two more seasons after signing for two years.

The Zimbabwean attacking midfielder arrived at Chiefs in 2018 from another South African Premier League side Mamelodi Sundowns.

The 30-year-old winger just found the back of the net once in last campaign while he had a mere three goals last term, with his first season bringing a return of 11 goals.

Billiat had previously been linked with a number of Europeans clubs, including Italian giants Napoli, Belgian side Club Brugge and KV Oostende.

On his side, Khune has also signed a two-year contract extension, meaning that he will go into a record 18th season with Kaizer Chiefs’ senior team, having joined the club in 2004.

Chiefs have extended the contract captain Bernard Parker for another one year same for defender Ramahlwe Mphahlele.

Amakhosi have signed another one-year contract with option to extend for a further year with attacking midfielder Lebogang Manyama.

Kaizer Chiefs’ fans will still be looking for new faces to freshen the squad and improve, but at least they can now focus on quality rather than quantity.
