Tau completed a R50 million move from Mamelodi Sundowns to The Seagulls in 2018, but was immediately sent out on loan to Belgian second division club Union Saint Gilloise.

Two more loan spells following, the most recent of which was at Anderlecht, before his work permit was approved and he was recalled to the English top flight.

Tau will become the first South African to feature in the English Premier League since Steven Pienaar in the 2016/17 season.

Tau has played 28 matches for Bafana Bafana and has scored 12 goals to date.

The 26-year-old didn’t waste time in taking to social media to post pictures of him proudly wearing his new Brighton jersey.

It’s also clear from the images that Percy Tau will wear the No 22 jersey this season.
