Sheran Yeini is set to return to Maccabi Tel Aviv and sign a 3.5 year-deal, after the club reached an agreement with Dutch outfit Vitesse Arnhem.

Yeini, 30, scored one goal and made 42 appearances since joining Vitesse in July 2015 from Maccabi where he scored 16 goals in 341 appearances.

Yeini, told the club’s official website: “It is exciting to return home to Maccabi, a club so dear to my heart. I am delighted we have an opportunity to fight for the important titles of the season and I will do everything to help the team. Due to the fact the number 21 shirt is taken, I will wear the number 13 the shirt I have been wearing for the national team. I wish us all the best of luck!”.

Sports Director Jordi Cruyff added: “As opposed to regular signings, Sheran’s qualities need no introduction and are known to everyone connected with Maccabi Tel Aviv. We are happy to welcome Sheran back to Maccabi Tel Aviv as we think that this is the right timing for both of us to be reunited”.
