Cape Town - Tiyani Mabunda does not see Percy Tau remaining on the books of Mamelodi Sundowns beyond the current campaign after an impressing for the Absa Premiership leaders. 

Speaking on SuperSport's Thursday Night Show, Mabunda said he feels the talented forward has done enough to secure a move overseas. 

Tau is currently the league's joint-top scorer with Polokwane City striker Rodney Ramagalela on 11 goals. 

Brazilians coach Pitso Mosimane also recently gave a hint that his prized asset could have attracted interest from clubs abroad when he told the media the 23-year old would be allowed to leave for the right offer. 

The Bafana Bafana international is a favourite to walk away with the Player of the Year award for his superb form with Sundowns this season. 

"I reserve the dancing part with my top striker Percy Tau. I promise to it. I would love that," Mabunda said. 

"You know, I do not foresee Percy spending another season with us. So, for me it will be nice to be with him on the last show just to wish him well. 

"I see him going somewhere in Europe. I don't know where, I won't lie. But my words are, I wish, I pray that God opens the doors for him."
