Tau Linked With R67m Transfer
Percy Tau has been linked with a return to Belgium as Royal Antwerp are reportedly “close” to agreeing to a R67 million transfer.
The 27-year-old, who dropped out of the Bafana Bafana squad after testing positive for Covid-19, could leave Brighton & Hove Albion this window.
According to Voetbalkrant, as cited by Sport Witness, Antwerp are closing in on a €4 million (R67 million) deal.
They were already interested in Tau ahead of the 2020/21 season but he opted to join Anderlecht on loan following a conversation with manager Vincent Kompany.
It appeared that the Premier League side were ready to give Tau more opportunities next season after CEO Paul Barber called his time so far “unlucky” before stating that he believes Tau’s “time will come”.
However, Brighton are now believed to be ready to sell Tau after he only made six appearances for the Seagulls since returning from his loan in January.
