Maccabi Tel Aviv FC granted Haris Medunjanin permission to leave the club and join an MLS club where he is set to sign a three-year-deal.

The 31-year-old Bosnian international midfielder, made 56 appearances in all competitions scoring 6 goals since joining Maccabi in January last year. 

Medunjanin, who spent two more years at Maccabi between 2010-2012 told the club’s official website: “I am very happy I came back to Maccabi and obviously would have been happier to have won titles. I would like to thank both Mitch Goldhar and Jordi Cruyff for allowing me leave the club now despite the fact I have five months left on my current contract, and accept a three-year-deal at an MLS club. I wish Maccabi all the best in the future and would like to thank everyone at the club and the supporters for the support I received during my time here in Tel Aviv”.

Sports Director Jordi Cruyff, added: “At the beginning of the transfer period, Haris asked us for permission to leave and accept a three-year-deal at the MLS. We granted him permission as we understood that receiving such an offer at this stage of his career is a great opportunity and therefore didn’t want to stand in his way. We would like to thank Haris for his professionalism as he remained with us till the end of the transfer period, and  thank him for his contribution to Maccabi both on and off the pitch. We wish him all the best in the future”.
