Egypt's Zamalek reveal talks with Sundowns star winger Billiat

Zamalek president Mortada Mansour said on Monday that South Africa's Sundowns winger Khama Billiat has agreed to join the Cairo giants in the next season, adding he is waiting for coach's decision to finalise the deal.

"We received an offer concerning Billiat, but our decision to hire him depends on the opinion of team's coach Mohamed Helmi," Mansour told reporters on Monday.
 
The 27-year-old was instrumental in Sundowns triumphant campaign in the Champions League that saw the South African side win their first continental title ever.
 
The Zimbabwean international produced many fine displays with his national team in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
 
Zamalek archrivals Ahly have shown interest in the player during the last winter transfer window but a deal collapsed after the Red Devils opted to sign Ivorian striker Souleymane Coulibaly.
 
On Sunday, Zamalek sealed a place in the Champions League round of 16 after claiming a 5-3 aggregate win over Nigerian side Enugu Rangers.
