Cape Town - Belgian top-flight side Club Brugge on Friday agreed a deal with the Premier League's Brighton & Hove Albion for the loan move of South African star Percy Tau.

According to reports, the move will see Tau loaned out for the upcoming 2019/2020 campaign without an option to buy.

The 25-year-old was last season named as the Proximus League Player of the Year in Belgium's second tier after starring for Royale Union Saint-Gilloise.

In his maiden season in Europe the on-loan Brighton attacker made 34 appearances, scoring 11 goals and providing 13 assists.

Work permit rules in the UK meant it was virtually impossible for Tau to play for the Seagulls, and it is believed that he still fails to qualify for a visa for the upcoming season.

Club Brugge finished second last season in the Belgian Pro League and have a chance at Champions League football as they face Dynamo Kiev in a Third qualifying round.

The winners then advance to the final Play-off round for a chance to feature in Europe's premier competition.
