Maccabi Tel Aviv agreed with Belgian outfit Genk on a one-year-loan-deal with an option for 25-year-old Bosnia and Herzegovina international midfielder Tino-Sven Susic who successfully underwent a medical at the club and will wear the number 31 jersey.

Maccabi’s coach Jordi Cruyff told the clubs’ official website: “Susic is a skillful midfielder with great potential and many attacking attributes who can play on several positions. He highly impressed us during the two legged tie against Hajduk Split last season and we kept monitoring his progress to try and see when we could land him. We are happy to have secured Susic on a loan deal and hope he will prove to be an asset as well as help the team reach its’ goals”.

Susic, 186cm, was born in Sarajevo but moved to Belgium at young age where he began his playing career with Vise before switching to Genk and Standard Liege. He represented Belgium’s U-18 and U-19 but opted to represent Bosnia and Herzegovina’s senior side for which he collected 9 full caps including two in the 2014 World Cup. In 2012 Susic was sold to Hajduk Split for which he made 134 appearances scoring 27 goals and assisting in 23 others for the Croatian giants including a penalty against Maccabi Tel Aviv in last season’s Europa League Playoff return leg at the Poljud stadium. At the end of August 2016 Susic was bought by Genk for which he made 15 appearances.
