Altman loaned out to Maccabi

By Simon Griver, July 5, 2013

Omri Altman, 19, has agreed a one-year loan deal with Israeli champions Maccabi Tel Aviv.

The Israel under-21 star recently signed a two-year contract extension at Fulham who believe the deal with his former club will give the player some valuable first-team experience.

"This is an amazing lad that will go as far as possible,’ said his agent, Gilad Katsav.

"We knew he was a remarkable player, but he has made fantastic progress in England."

The former Maccabi youth team captain has joined the Israeli champions at their Austrian training camp ahead of their Champions League qualifier against Hungarian champions Gyori later this month.
