Breaking: Tau Finally In The English Premier League!

English Premier League side, Brighton and Hove Albion confirmed the return of Percy Tau.

It’s been widely reported over the past few days that Tau looked set to realise his dream of plying his trade in the English Premier League, with the odds having been increasingly in his favour to secure a work permit in the United Kingdom.

Following Brexit, Brighton have taken advantage of the overhaul of rules with regards to a work permit in the Kingdom and have made the return of Tau a priority for the current 2020/21 season.

The club has since confirmed the return of Tau, who’s since been recalled from his loan spell with RSC Anderlecht in Belgium.

“Albion have received a Governing Body Endorsement, the new points-based system for non-English players which came into force last week when the transition period following the UK's exit from the European Union ended, from the FA for Tau,” the club said on their official website.

“We're pleased to be able to welcome Percy to the club and begin working with him. I know he's a player whose progress many of our fans have followed in recent seasons.

“We too have closely monitored his performances in Belgium in the last three years. He's been playing at a really good level, particularly with Bruges and Anderlecht where he has been involved in the Champions League, and his next step is to show he is ready to make the transition into the Premier League. 

“He brings some different attributes and qualities to the group and he wants to take the next step in his career. We’re looking forward to working with him,” Albion head coach, Graham Potter added.
