Just days after confirming his exit from Club Brugge, Bafana Bafana star Percy Tau is now reportedly closing in on a sensational loan deal to join rivals Anderlecht.

On Monday morning, reports emerged from Belgium claiming that the former Mamelodi Sundowns star was closing in on a deal to join Anderlecht for the 2020/21 campaign.

According to HLN, Vincent Kompany's side has entered final negotiations with Brighton & Hove Albion over the short-term deal for the 26-year-old, who recorded four goals and eight assists in 30 appearances last season.

Anderlecht are reportedly interested in Tau's services due to his ability to play across the front line, and see him as a value-for-money signing when compared to the club's errors in the transfer window last season.

It is claimed further that Tau will undergo a medical in South Africa ahead of the move, which would see Anderlecht become his third Belgian club in as many seasons, having spent the past two campaigns with Union Saint-Gilloise in the nation's second division and Brugge, respectively. 

Fellow Jupiler Pro League side Royal Antwerp, who finished four places ahead of Anderlecht last season, have also been credited with an interest in the 2017/18 PSL Golden Boot winner's services.
