Maccabi Tel Aviv FC and Hapoel Hadera reached an agreement for the sale of Eliel Peretz for an undisclosed fee. The midfielder who spent last season on a loan-spell at Hadera scoring 5 goals in 34 appearances in all competitions – will now make the move permanent after a deal was agreed between the two clubs.

Maccabi Tel Aviv CEO, Ben Mansford, told the club’s official website: “Eliel now feels it is time for him to make a permanent move away after a number of loan moves. While we would like to keep all of our Academy graduates connected to Maccabi, we have reluctantly agreed to transfer him to Hadera with Maccabi retaining a significant interest in his future. Eliel has been a pleasure to have around the Club and everyone at Maccabi wishes Eliel all the very best for the future”.

A product of Maccabi’s Youth department, Peretz made his senior debut at the age of 18 in the 2-0 State Cup victory over Hapoel Kfar Sava in March 2016.
