Pitso Comments On Tau Rumours
Pitso Mosimane has commented on rumours that Al Ahly are close to signing Percy Tau from Brighton & Hove Albion.
The South African coach could link up with the Young Lion again, with rumours heating up that Al Ahly have come to an agreement over the fee with the Premier League side.
Mosimane told Victor Molefe on Ukhozi FM on Thursday that there is real possibility his side will sign Tau from Brighton.
“I’m trying to get Percy Tau but there is no deal yet. But there is nothing that is stopping us from trying,” he said.
“There is a possibility that we can get Percy Tau but we don’t have him right now.”
Meanwhile, TimesLIVE are reporting that both clubs have “agreed terms with Tau only having to sign on the dotted line on Friday to complete the deal”.
It is believed that Mosimane himself has convinced his former player to join him at Al Ahly, who could make him the highest-paid player at the African champions.
Tau would leave Brighton just six months after returning to the Seagulls from his loan at RSC Anderlecht, having just made three Premier League appearances under Graham Potter.
