Belgian Jupiler League club side, Royal Antwerp are edging closer to signing Brighton & Hove Albion attacker Percy Tau for €4m.
Tau joined Brighton from Mamelodi Sundowns 2018 but was loaned out to Belgium on several occasions due to work permit issues.
After a long wait, Tau acquired his work permit during the 2020/21 season and cut short his loan stint with Anderlecht to link up with Graham Potter’s side in January but he South Africa international struggled to make an impact at the Amex Stadium and could make only one Premier League start in the recently concluded campaign.
With the 27-year-old’s Brighton return not going according to plan, he now appears to be on his way back to Belgium, where he enjoyed significant success and Royal Antwerp looks the likeliest destination.
The Belgian Pro League club’s attempt to acquire Tau’s services last summer failed but are now closing in on the South African’s signature according to Belgian outlet Voetbalkrant.
Valued by Brighton at €6m two years ago, the Seagulls are now prepared to let him leave the club for just €4m.
