YADAH FC’S TRANSFER MOVE

Khama Billiat joined Yadah FC earlier this year after leaving Kaizer Chiefs in 2023. After months of negotiations, speculations, and failed transfers in the DStv Premier League, Billiat settled for Yadah FC.

His deal with Yadah FC undoubtedly made him the highest-paid Castle Larger Premier League player. Billiat earns a base salary of R95 000. However, this is way less than Kaizer Chiefs’ proposed salary.

The Soweto giants were willing to keep Khama Billiat but with a base salary of R480 000, a 60% pay cut from the alleged R800 000 he was earning. Yadah FC also paid Khama R380 000 cash signing-on fee. The club also gifted him a new R2 million Land Rover as part of the deal.
