Belgian publication, Het Laatste Nieuws, have reported that the 25-year-old attacker is not likely to extend his stay with Club beyond his current loan period, meaning that he will return to Brighton & Hove Albion at the end of the season when his loan expires.

Tau made a terrific start to life in Europe in Belgium’s second tier with Royale Union Saint-Gilloise in 2018/29, going on to win the Proximus Player of the Season award for his efforts and securing a move into the top-flight for 2019/20.

Now though, with just one Pro League start in 2020 so far, ‘The Lion of Judah’ has fallen down the pecking order under Philippe Clement in recent months, and HLN described him as being ‘undeniably in a form and mentality crisis’.

Work permit complications mean that it will be difficult for Tau to secure the right to play in the English Premier League with Brighton next season, but he is unlikely to be short of suitors for next season should Club opt against extending his time at Jan Breydel Stadium.

Tau is expected to be part of Molefi Ntseki’s Bafana side for the upcoming clashes with São Tomé and Príncipe as he looks to become one of the few South Africans to reach double figures for his country on the goal front.
