Bafana Bafana forward Percy Tau is nearing a move to Belgium Pro League club, Club Brugge.


According to RMC Sport, a loan agreement between Brugge and Brighton & Hove Albion had been reached with the 25-year-old to join his new teammates on the approval of his European visa.


Tau spent last season on-loan at second vision Union Saint-Glloise where he scored 13 goals and assisted the same amount on his way to being named Proximus Player of the Season.


The former PSL Footballer of the Season joined Brighton from Mamelodi Sundowns ahead of the 2018/19 season, but was loaned out immediately as he was unable to obtain a work visa.


Bafana Bafana’s low ranking makes it almost impossible for Tau to receive an English work permit at this time, forcing him to look elsewhere to play his football this coming season.


Brugge’s league rivals KRC Genk are also reported admirers of the forward.
