Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes Percy Tau has the temperament to succeed overseas as he closes in on a move to Brighton in the Premier League. 

The 24-year-old forward looks set to become South Africa's most expensive export after the Brazilians accepted an offer reportedly in excess of R50 million from the Seagulls. 

Tau has played no part in Sundowns' pre-season preparations in a bid to facilitate his transfer to the Amex Stadium, and Mosimane is thrilled to see the Bafana Bafana international's dream realised. 

However, he acknowledges that the PSL Footballer of the Season, who scored 11 goals in 30 appearances to help Masandawana to the league title, needs to work on his finishing. 

"Game attitude, playwise, yes, he will make it overseas," Mosimane told SowetanLive. "He's got good temperament. He can handle the pressure. He's a big player. 

"He's been good to us. He served us loyally. He's a player from our development structure and for him to break the transfer record fee from an SA team to overseas fills me with joy. I'm happy for him. I wish him well."
