Bafana Bafana star Percy Tau could be in line to be reunited with his former coach Luka Elsner whom he worked with at Belgian club Royal Union Saint Galloise.

Tau won the Proximus League Player of the Season in his sole campaign under the 40-year-old Slovenian before he went on to represent Club Brugge and Anderlecht in the Jupiler Pro League in the two years that followed.

While he made strides with his career, his recall, upon earning a work permit with parent club Brighton and Hove Albion coincided with a severe lack of opportunities which eventually saw him jump ship for a lucrative move to Egyptian giants Al Ahly with Pitso Mosimane.

And while Mosimane has since left the club, there are talks that Tau will follow with the Red Devils concerned over his injury record, with the South African attacking talisman now out for the season.

According to iDiski times, Elsner, who tried to sign him in 2019 when he landed a move to Amiens, has now come in for the player in a loan offer from Ligue 2 club Le Havre for the 2022/23 season.

However, the publication suggests Ahly have yet to make an official response to what is been confirmed as the only concrete offer for Tau’s services over the last few months.

Tau enjoyed some of his best football under the promising tactician and with Ahly open to loan deals for their players who are no longer part of their first-team plans, there’s huge possibility for his European return after just one season.

But with the transfer window in France and most of Europe’s major leagues closing on 1 September, time is running out to make the move happen.
