Attacker Percy Tau says he would love to inspire future generations of South African players by playing in the Premier League.
The 26-year-old is owned by Brighton and Hove Albion but has spent the past three seasons in Belgium on loan, with Union SG, Club Brugge and now Anderlecht, where he continues to shine.
Tau also impressed for Bafana Bafana in two Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, scoring three goals.
Speaking to the Seagulls' official website, Tau revealed his gratitude for having signed for Brighton, alongside his dreams of playing in the best league in the world.
He said: "I would be very proud if I was to play in the Premier League.
"People from my country are always looking out for players who compete in the big divisions across the world. We give hope to the next generation of players in South Africa. It helps them to have something to aim towards.
"I would be very proud if I could be one of those players."
Tau added: "I am just grateful that Brighton were able to sign me from South Africa. I will always be proud of that moment and cherish them for giving me the opportunity to come to Europe."
