Football: Ben Basat leaves Toulouse for Maccabi Tel-Aviv

Israeli international striker Eden Ben Basat has left Toulouse to join Maccabi Tel-Aviv, the French club confirmed on Thursday.

Ben Basat, 27, returns to his homeland having signed for Israeli champions Maccabi for an undisclosed fee after a three-year stint in France.

He joined Brest in 2011 from Hapoel Haifa before moving to Toulouse in January 2013 and scored seven goals in 32 appearances for Alain Casanova's side.

Ben Basat is a former two-time Israeli league champion with Maccabi Haifa (2005, 2006) and has been capped 10 times at international level.

On Wednesday Ivory Coast defender Serge Aurier joined French title-holders Paris Saint-Germain from Toulouse on a season-long loan deal, with an option for PSG to make the move permanent.
