Reports: Details Of Tau’s Next Move…

Percy Tau flew out to Europe at the weekend and the details of his next move abroad have been revealed, according to reports.  

It’s a forgone conclusion by now that the Bafana Bafana talisman will not be returning to his English Premier League parent club Brighton & Hove Albion due to the strict work permit laws in the UK, meaning he was always destined for a third successive loan spell since his R50-million transfer fee from Mamelodi Sundowns in 2018.

Now, after spending a year at Club Brugge in the Belgium top flight, the forward officially said his goodbyes last month as his loan stint came to an end, with indications that the club were not pursuing another season-long agreement with Brighton.

But reports in Belgium immediately linked him with a switch to their Pro League rivals Anderlecht and it would appear Tau flew out to Zaventem over the weekend and is set to put pen to paper at Anderlecht for another loan deal.  

  

“Percy Tau landed this morning (Monday) at Zaventem – it took Anderlecht a lot of effort to get him to Belgium from South Africa. The Purple & White will hire the attacker from Brighton & Hove Albion, with no purchase option,” read a report from local newspaper, Het Laatste Nieuws.

The 26-year-old featured in 30 matches for Brugge, managing four goals and eight assists in all competitions, including some big games against Real Madrid, PSG and Manchester United in the Uefa Champions League and Europa League.

Tau still has two more years to run on his Brighton contract, but the work permit situation in the UK remains a stumbling block for him to ever play for his parent club.

He was loaned out to Belgian second tier outfit Royal Union Saint-Gilloise two years ago and his Footballer of the Year award grabbed Brugge’s attention.   

Tau now looks set for another loan spell at Anderlecht.
