Brighton braced for R67m Tau bid?

Percy Tau looks set to leave Brighton and Hove Albion for Royal Antwerp in a deal worth a reported €4-million (R67m).

Tau, 27, recently stated he intends to remain at the Premier League side while the club's CEO reiterated his statement that he's been unlucky to have arrived during the mid-way stage of their 2020/21 campaign.

However, speculation has been rife in Belgian media this week claiming Antwerp, who finished third in the Jupiler Pro League will make another attempt to lure him back for a fourth stint in the country.

Last season, they were believed to have ended negotiations with Brighton due to their €6-million (R100m) valuation which saw the Bafana Bafana star eventually make a loan switch to Anderlecht.

But Voetbalkrant claims an offer of €4-million is likely to be accepted by the Seagulls as Tau - who featured only six times for the club - only holding one year left on his contract.

Tau has scored seven goals and registered five assists in 32 games in the Belgian top-flight with Club Brugge and Anderlecht respectively.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns star won the 2019/20 league title with Brugge and featured in the UEFA Champions League group stages which earned him a work permit to be registered in the Premier League.
