What Now For Tau?

Percy Tau’s move to Brighton & Hove Albion may have been finalised, but now it’s time for the involved parties to decide where he’ll actually be playing his football this season.
 
 
Tau completed a multimillion-rand move from Mamelodi Sundowns to England earlier this month after months of speculation, however, work permit rules in England mean that he won’t be able to play there any time soon – if at all.
 
With that in mind, his representatives are believed to be working around the clock to try and organise a loan move for him ahead of the upcoming campaign, with several clubs thought to be interested in him.
 
Royale Union Saint-Gilloise, a club also owned by Brighton owner, Tony Bloom, are known to be extremely keen in taking Tau to their club in the Belgian second division and see him as the perfect player to come in to help them in their push for promotion.
 
Aside from RUSG, and as reported in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, the Siya crew has also been informed that Tau does have suitors in Belgium and Holland, with clubs from both countries having shown an interest in bringing him on board.
 
Tau was back in South Africa this week in order to obtain a Schengen visa, which will be needed to travel to other parts of Europe, ahead of finalising a loan move, but is expected to jet back to Europe as soon as he has received his visa.
