Tau To Wait For EPL, Set For Another Loan

Adopted from Soccerladuma.co.za

According to reports in England, Bafana Bafana’s Percy Tau will once again be loaned out by Brighton & Hove Albion due to ‘work permit obstacles’ for the 2019/20 season.

Tau joined Brighton last year from Mamelodi Sundowns, however, work permit rules in England meant that it was always going to be difficult for him to get permission to play in the league, largely because of Bafana’s ranking, his transfer fee and his wage.

The main stumbling block for the 25-year-old is the fact that South Africa isn’t among the top 50 in the world at present, and the fact that the rules state that candidates must be with a nation that has been top 50 on average over the last two years means that that is unlikely to change anytime soon.

Tau, who is currently with Stuart Baxter’s squad in Egypt after they touched down in Cairo this morning, is set to be playing elsewhere in the new campaign according to the Seagulls’ local publication, though at this point it remains to be seen where.

The Argus said in a recent article, “Albion’s South African star will be loaned out again this season due to work permit obstacles. Tau spent last season on loan to Union Saint-Gilloise, the Belgian second-tier club of Albion owner-chairman Tony Bloom.”
