Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns have reportedly tabled a R15 million bid to re-land the services of Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat.

On Tuesday this week Sundowns' acting general manager Yogesh Singh confirmed that talks between the two clubs were ongoing and negotiations were advancing.

As such, it has now been revealed that the Brazilians have made an offer of R15 million for the forward to make a possible return to Chloorkop.

The 28-year-old spent five seasons of success with Downs before making a big money switch to the Glamour Boys at the start of 2018/19.

However, it seems the player is not content with life at Chiefs and reports suggest he is a major instigator behind wanting a return to his former club.

Soccer Laduma said: "The Siya crew has it on good authority that Sundowns, who are determined to bring the Zimbabwean attacker back to Chloorkop a year after he left them to join Amakhosi as a free agent, have offered Chiefs an incredible R15-million in an attempt to conclude negotiations."

It is unclear at this stage whether the offer has been accepted though talks are said to be progressing.

Earlier, Egyptian giants Zamalek had a R27 million offer turned down as Billiat reportedly wants to continue his career in South Africa.
