Al Ahly has followed up the signing of Karim Fouad and Luis Miquissone with the capture of South Africa international Percy Tau for an undisclosed fee.
Tau, 27, has been a target for the Reds for a while now after Pitso Mosimane had previously hinted that he will be bringing a player from South Africa to Al Ahly’s ranks. Speculation of the player being Percy Tau grew increasingly louder when reports emerged of Brighton wanting to cash in on the player after he entered the final year of his contract.
A leaked video of Tau at El-Tetsh but confirmed the signing, with now the deal being completed after the player put pen-to-paper on his Al Ahly contract. He will become the second-ever South African to wear the Al Ahly shirt after Phakamani Mahlambi.
