The Israel international spent last season on loan at the Liberty Stadium from Kaiserslautern but has now completed a switch to Hapoel, where he had a couple of years earlier in his career.

He says there were opportunities to go elsewhere but he is delighted to be back in Tel Aviv after a difficult year with Swansea.

The 26-year-old scored just one goal during his time at the Welsh club, and that came towards the end of his spell in the 3-2 win over Wigan Athletic.

"I experienced a tough season," he is quoted as saying in the Jerusalem Post. "I didn't feel part of the team. I had to take a step back to regain confidence and enjoy playing once more.

"I'm really happy to be back home.

"Perhaps I could have made more money at other clubs, but I'd rather play for Hapoel.

"The expectations from me would have been high regardless of my salary and I will do my all to repay the club."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
