Percy Tau arrived at The Amex in 2018, but hasn’t featured for Brighton & Hove Albion because of his failure to obtain a work permit to play in England.

The forward has been out on loan at Belgium since he signed for the English club and last summer, the Seagulls allowed him to join Anderlecht on a season-long loan deal.

On December 15th, we relayed news from the Belgian media that Vincent Kompany’s side are taking into account the possibility of Brighton recalling the forward in January.

It was also stated that Brexit can help Tau obtain the work permit to play for Potter’s side in 2021.

According to Voetbal24, it ‘increasingly looks like’ the 26-year-old will return to his parent club next month.

The report’s title reads, ‘Anderlecht hears news about the immediate departure of Percy Tau’.

Graham Potter’s side have managed only two wins in 13 league matches and are now 16th in the table after having accumulated 11 points. They are two points ahead of 18th place Fulham.

Due to their current situation, the outlet states Brighton are ‘looking for new attackers’ and therefore, they would want to take Tau back in January.

It’s once again stated the new rules that will come into effect for signing foreign players post Brexit will help Tau obtain work permit to represent his parent club in the second half of this season.
