Eden Kartzev, extended his contract at Maccabi before joining Ironi Kiryat Shmona on a one-year-loan deal after an agreement was reached between the two clubs.

Maccabi Tel Aviv’s CEO, Ben Mansford, told the club’s official website: “Eden is one of the best young talents in Israel at the moment and we are delighted that he has committed again to a longer term contract at Maccabi. 

Mitch invested in the Academy from the start of his ownership and this continued investment allows us to nurture and develop the best young players in the country. Eden is a product of this commitment and I look forward to Eden continuing his professional progression with further game time at Kiryat Shmona”.
