In Millions: Tau’s Staggering Transfer Fee Revealed!

Brighton and Hove Albion confirmed that Tau had joined Egyptian giants, Al Ahly on 'undisclosed terms' however, reports coming out of England have revealed the mammoth figure behind the Lion Of Judah's high-profile transfer.

After weeks of speculation, Tau was finally unveiled as an Al Ahly player.

The club’s head of transfers Amir Tawfik, announced on Thursday that Tau had signed a four-year deal with the Red Eagles and that the transfer will be formally concluded once the transfer window reopens in Egypt and is also subject to international clearance.

According to British publication Brighton & Hove Independent, the fee, although the Seagulls have referred to it as undisclosed, is understood to be in the region of £1.6m (±R32.7m).

This fee will be made in three separate payments.

A payment of around £500,000 (±R10.2m), has already been made to Brighton to secure Tau's signature, with the publication revealing that the remaining £1.1m (±R22.5m), will be paid over the next two seasons.

Meanwhile, Brighton coach Graham Potter was full of praise for the 27-year-old, hailing him as a popular player amongst the squad.

“I have really enjoyed working with Percy. He is very professional and extremely popular with the rest of the squad, but at this stage of his career he wants to be playing regularly and we fully understand that,” he told the club’s media department.

“This move gives him the opportunity to do that, and he is joining one of Africa’s top clubs. On behalf of everyone at the club I wish him well for the future,” he added.
