Khama Billiat and Leonardo Castro will both leave Mamelodi Sundowns at the end of the 2017-18 Premier Soccer League (PSL) season, head coach Pitso Mosimane has confirmed.

Once an integral part of the Brazilians unit, Castro has only started seven games in the last 12 months with the once famous 'CBD' trio set to all ply their trade elsewhere come the start of next season.

Keagan Dolly is currently at Montpellier in France, and Billiat could well join the Bafana Bafana attacker in Europe in the near future.

The Zimbabwe international proved his worth off the bench as Sundowns beat Bidvest Wits 2-0 in an Absa Premiership clash on Tuesday evening. The former Ajax Cape Town man with both goals.

"Khama is leaving, Leo is leaving," Mosimane told "The CBD is gone hey, so we have to start something [new]. CBD is gone – Keagan is gone, Leo is going, Khama is going, so we need to change the team."

Tiyani Mabunda is also yet to pen a new deal with the club, but Mosimane is confident the midfielder will remain at Chloorkop.
