Anderlecht manager Vincent Kompany says the club will look to develop Percy Tau for the Premier League after securing his services for the 2020/21 season.

Tau, 26, completed his season-long loan deal to the 34-time league champions on Wednesday after winning the Proximus League Player of the Season and Jupiler Pro League title in his previous two loan stints in Belgium.

"I hope this is going to be an amazing journey," Kompany said after Tau's latest move was finalised on Wednesday.

"You said you've come here for the next step so we are going to push you to become the best player you can be. I know they are looking back to you in the Premier League so it's our role to bring you there."

Tau netted four goals and registered eight assists in 30 games across all competitions with Club Brugge during the 2019/20 campaign.
