Official: Pitso’s Al Ahly Sign Tau & Miquissone
Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly have confirmed the sensational transfer of Bafana Bafana international Percy Tau from Brighton & Hove Albion and the signing of Luis Miquissone.
The ‘Club of the Century’ have delivered the marquee signing requested by Mosimane.
Al Ahly announced the signing of Tau today, after agreeing to a fee of around €1.8 million to be paid in instalments with the Premier League side.
Tau signed a four-year contract with the Egyptian giants.
Tau joined Brighton for €3.2 million from Mamelodi Sundowns in 2018. However, due to the league’s restrictions for foreign players he had to go out on the loan several times before finally receiving his work permit in January.
However, he only made three Premier League appearances for the Seagulls since his return and was understood not to be guaranteed game time in 2021/22.
In addition, his contract would’ve run out at the end of the campaign, which is understood to have favoured Al Ahly in negotiations.
In addition, Al Ahly also signed former Masandawana winger Miquissone, who joined the club from Simba SC following a fine campaign in Tanzania.
