According to the Brighton website, manager Graham Potter was looking forward to working with Tau.
“We’re pleased to be able to welcome Percy to the club and begin working with him. I know he’s a player whose progress many of our fans have followed in recent seasons,” said Potter.
“We too have closely monitored his performances in Belgium in the last three years. He’s been playing at a really good level, particularly with Bruges and Anderlecht where he has been involved in the Champions League, and his next step is to show he is ready to make the transition into the Premier League.
“He brings some different attributes and qualities to the group and he wants to take the next step in his career. We’re looking forward to working with him,” added Potter.
Tau is a regular for Bafana Bafana and has scored 12 goals in 28 internationals for South Africa.
