Maccabi Tel Aviv FC can announce that an agreement has been reached with Nick Blackman which will see him return to the club on a two-year-contract with an option for a third season. 

The 29-year-old Jewish forward has joined Maccabi on a free transfer and became the second signing of the 2019/20 season.

Maccabi CEO, Ben Mansford, told the club’s official website: “We are all delighted that Nick will be returning to Maccabi. Nick showed everyone what he was about during the 2017/18 season and therefore needs no real introduction. Nick came to meet Vladimir Ivic in Holland last week and it was clear that he was excited to become part of a Championship winning group and to play his part in pushing forward this season. We are pleased to be able to add him to the current squad. Nick will give Vlada another attacking option and this will add to the already strong competition across the front line. Welcome back Nick”.

Blackman scored 12 goals in 40 appearances for Maccabi in all competitions during the 2017/18 season – returns to the club. He scored the only goal of the game during Maccabi’s 1-0 Europa League group stage victory away to Villarreal and helped the side win the Toto Cup.
