Cape Town - Orlando Pirates assistant coach Rulani Mokwena refused to reveal whether or not he feels Percy Tau should move overseas as transfer rumours continue to swirl.
Mokwena coached Tau at Mamelodi Sundowns prior to the former's departure to the Buccaneers last year. Since then, the 24-year-old has grabbed headlines with a magnificent season, reportedly catching the eyes of clubs abroad.
Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has admitted that he would like to see Tau in the Premier League, but Mokwena has refused to reveal whether or not he agrees.
"I can't speak about Percy because he does not belong to me, but belongs to Mamelodi Sundowns and I have no right to speak about players that belong to other clubs," Mokwena told Goal.
However, Mokwena suggested that he has spoken to Tau about the topic. "Whether he's ready or not, he has asked for my opinion, and Percy knows my opinion on the matter," he said.
Tau finished the 2017/18 season as the Absa Premiership's joint top scorer with 11 goals. He also earned himself the Footballer of the Season and Absa Premiership Player's Player of the Season prizes at the recent PSL awards.
Meanwhile, Mokwena enjoyed a successful season working under Milutin Sredojevic, helping Orlando Pirates to second place on the Premiership table.
