Top 10 most expensive PSL exports

Percy Tau is promising to become one of the PSL's greatest exports but where does he rank amongst the top ten most expensive transfers to leave South Africa?

Tau, 25, has taken his career to greater hights this week after helping Club Brugge qualify for the UEFA Champions League group stages.

The Bafana Bafana forward will line up against Paris Saint-Germain, Galatasaray and 13-time Champions Real Madrid in Group A during the 2019/20 campaign.

It marks the latest step in his meteoric rise since leaving Mamelodi Sundowns for Brighton & Hove Albion before the 2018/19 season in a deal worth a reported €3.2m (R50m).

Among the players who are still currently starring abroad that started their professional careers in South Africa include Thulani Serero, Keagan Dolly and Lyle Foster - who are all amongst the top ten.

Serero left Ajax before the 2011/12 season in €2.5m siwtch to parent club Ajax Amsterdam, which still ranks as a club-record transfer for the Glad African Championship side.

It comes as no surprise to see the list dominated by exports from the traditional 'big-three' with seven of ten having left the country after making a name for themselves with Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Masandawana.

Thembinkosi 'Terror' Fanteni is one of two players on the list who no longer plays professional football, while three have since returned home to feature in the Absa Premiership again.
