Brighton & Hove Albion signed Percy Tau from South African club Mamelodi Sundowns in 2018.

The South African international didn’t get a work permit to play in the Premier League, which is why the Seagulls allowed him to join Belgian side Union SG on a season-long loan deal last summer.

He still has three more years left on his contract at Brighton, but will not represent Graham Potter’s side next season, if the reports are to be believed.

Het Laatste Nieuws claims the 25-year-old is still not eligible to obtain a work permit to play in England.

Club Brugge are looking at the forward and are ‘currently negotiating’ with Brighton for the player. Despite fierce competition for Tau, the talks between the two clubs are moving in the ‘right direction’.

HLN explains it is still not clear if Brugge are planning to sign Tau on a loan deal or a permanent transfer.

Tau scored 13 goals and registered 13 assists in all competitions for Union SG last season.
