The 24-year-old, who is contracted to Nurnberg until 2014, will end the campaign in his home country before returning to the Bundesliga club next season.

"Almog approached us and asked if we would loan him to Tel Aviv for half a year," said Nurnberg's director of sport Martin Bader.

"We have granted him this wish."

Cohen has made 58 Bundesliga appearances for Nurnberg since joining from Maccabi Netanya in 2010.

The transfer window in Israel is still open until tomorrow, enabling him to move even though the opportunity to trade players in Germany closed last Friday.

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
