CAPE TOWN – Percy Tau has secured a move to Belgian outfit Anderlecht on a one-year loan deal from English Premier League club Brighton & Hove Albion.
The Bafana Bafana striker spent last season at Club Brugge, where he started well, but faded towards the end of the campaign.
At Anderlecht, Tau will play under player-manager Vincent Kompany.
“I am part of a team that always wants to play good and attacking football. That suits me perfectly‚” an excited Tau told Anderlecht’s official website.
“RSCA has my style of football. We are made for each other. I will do everything I can to contribute to this team and guide the club back to where it belongs – to the top of Belgian football.”

A delighted Peter Verbeke, Anderlecht’s sporting director said: “Percy is a player who already knows our capital and the league. He is a creative‚ technically strong‚ fast and agile player‚ and he can play in various attacking positions.
“In addition‚ he has already demonstrated that he can be efficient and decisive.
“Due to a lack of preparation‚ we just have to give him some time to be important for us‚ but we are of course happy with his added value to our squad.”
