Percy Tau reunites with compatriot Pitso Mosimane at the record 42-time Egyptian league title winners.
The two won the Caf Champions League together at Mamelodi Sundowns in 2016, Mosimane has been key in the rise of Tau.
Percy Tau parts ways with Graham Potter’s side after featuring in just three Premier League games.
He joined the Seagulls from Sundowns in 2018 and could not debut for them until he was summoned from his third loan spell in Belgium after finally seeing his work permit issues sorted out.
Tau played on loans at Royale Union Saint-Gilloise, Club Brugge, and the latest before his debut with Brighton at Anderlecht
