Brighton and Hove Albion CEO Paul Barber has dropped the biggest hint over Percy Tau’s future at the club yet.
Barber was answering questions at a Brighton fans forum on Tuesday and revealed that Tau might have a future at the Amex after all, despite numerous reports in England linking him with an exit from the club.
The club CEO admitted that Tau came in at an awkward time of the season after being recalled by the Seagulls from Belgian giants Anderlecht in January. Barber further went on to explain that the 27-year-old did not receive a chance to show his talent and might be given an opportunity to do so in the new campaign.
"I think Percy has also been a little bit unlucky in the position he occupies. There have been other players who are more established at this level, who have been in good form and therefore have been ahead of him," Barber said.
"These things sometimes don't always go according to the way supporters think they should or might and the player himself wants to get as many minutes on the pitch as he can.
"But ultimately Graham can only play 11 given players at any time and this season Percy perhaps has not had as much football as he would have liked, or others might have liked to see him.
"But time will come. When that time does come hopefully, we will see more of Percy and things will go forward from there," he added.
Tau has made just six appearances for coach Graham Potter’s side this season, registering one assist during that time.
