Tau Attracts EPL Interest, No Bid Made
Pitso Mosimane has already stated that he may have to comes with losing Mamelodi Sundowns star, Percy Tau, and it appears he’s attracted interest from England.
According to The Argus in the United Kingdom, Brighton & Hove Albion are ‘tracking’ the 24-year-old Bafana Bafana international, although it was said that at this point ‘no bid has been made’.
Tau has impressed over the last two seasons since making his breakthrough in the top-flight, and this season he ended the campaign as the PSL’s Footballer of the Season and Players’ Player of the Season.
Now it remains to be seen if Brighton will act on their interest in the South African attacker, although one major stumbling block could be that of a British work permit, given how strict the rules are for footballers wishing to play in England.
The Siya crew will continue to dig into the matter regarding Percy Tau’s future, but with a believed price tag of around €3.5m (around R55m), the Masandawana star could become one of South Africa’s most expensive transfers of all time if he’s to make a move overseas.
