Percy Tau’s agent Mmatsatsi Sefalafala says the arrangements for getting Percy Tau a work permit are on course.
Tau was loaned to Belgian League champions Club Brugge for the 2019/20 season.
He is set to return to his parent club Brighton & Hove Albion of the English Premiership since the league in Belgium is concluded.
“Our focus was finishing the [Belgian] season. Now, we can start preparing for the future because the season is over. I am not in a position to reveal what will happen next season but just keep your eyes peeled,” Sefalafala told Independent Media.
“It’s very rare that you wouldn’t find clubs that are interested if you represent a player like Tau. He’s the type of player every coach would want in their team. So, there will always be interest in him. Some even show interest in the middle of a season. So, this is something we are used to.”
Sefalafala continued: “However, our focus is not on the clubs interested in Tau. When had not discussed where he would go before the season got disrupted because of the coronavirus. We shouldn’t rush things. It’s important that we take out time to think about in properly,” Sefalafala.
“Laws are laws but there are ongoing talks in trying to get him the work permit in England. This is a sensitive matter and we’re not folding our arms. Tau also wants to play in the EPL. I always get this question of the work permit. It’s difficult but we are trying. Unfortunately, the rules and laws are still against us”.
Sefalafala says she is pleased with Tau’s performance and she didn’t expect that he would win the league, adding that it happened so soon in his European career.
“It’s rare for South African players to get the same opportunity Tau got. For him to play in so many competitions is huge. It encourages him to work harder.
“That’s Percy for you. He faces difficult situations until they become easy.
“I am very happy that he won the league. To be honest, I didn’t expect him to win the league just two seasons in Europe,” concluded Sefalafala.
