Tau, who made the most of his loan stint from Brighton, lifted the Proximus Player of the Season, while 'Shabba' ended the Super Lig campaign with relegation and an expected off-season exit.

Both players are expected to represent new club's with UK-based publication The Argus confirming this week Tau's obstacles of a Premier League debut is unlikely to be resolved. 

The local newspaper claimed the former Sundowns attacker who spent last season on loan to Union Saint-Gilloise, the Belgian second tier club of Albion owner-chairman Tony Bloom - will be shipped off for another loan spell.

In France, the heavy South African contingent could also be set for moves, with Lebo Mothiba reportedly attracting interest from the Premier League and Lebo Phiri attracting interest from the top-flight after being relegated with Guimgamp last season.
