CAPE TOWN - Percy Tau has finally completed his long-expected move from Mamelodi Sundowns to Premier League club Brighton & Hove Albion.
The Bafana Bafana striker has joined for a reported R50m, making him the most expensive purchase in PSL in history.
However, the 24-year-old will not head straight into the Brighton first team. Instead he will be loaned out to an unconfirmed team in Europe.
“Percy is a player we have highlighted for the future, and there is no doubting his talent, having been voted South African player of the season,” Brighton manager Chris Hughton told the club website.
“Percy will go out on loan this season, play regularly and get some experience of European football. We will be watching his progress and monitoring his development over the season.”
