Bafana Bafana forward Percy Tau's injury status has been clarified by his Egyptian club Al Ahly following weeks of transfer speculation on the attacker's future.

Tau has been linked with a move away from the Egyptian heavyweights since Pitso Mosimane left and had his injury concerns become a subject of interest in recent weeks.

Reports of moves back to Belgium have been reported but then he has found his way back to Cairo where he has been registered for the CAF Champions League with Ahly due to face US Monastir of Tunisia in the last qualifying round next month.

Ahly remain in pre-season ahead of the start of the Egyptian season next month.

"The player has recovered from his muscular injury, and he will perform the final phase of his rehabilitation program this week.

"The player is expected to join the group next week," says the club in a statement attributed to club director Sayed Abdelhafiz.

Tau's injury has seen him miss out on the latest Bafana Bafana squad set to play two international friendlies against Sierra Leone and Botswana on 24 and 27 September.
