Arab football league signs first ever Israeli player Diaa Saba

Arab football league has signed its first-ever Israeli player, Diaa Saba.

Arab-Israeli Diaa Saba, who plays for the Israeli national team, has signed a two-year contract with Dubai’s Al-Nasr SC.

As being repoted, the transfer fee for Saba was $2.9m.

 Diaa Sabaa has been the most expensive Israeli footballer in history.

As a midfielder, he played for Israeli clubs Maccabi Netanya from 2014-18 and Hapoel Be’er Sheva for the 2018-19 season, before signing for Guangzhou R&F last year for a record €5m ($5.8m).

Saba has scored 87 goals in 255 appearances in all competitions and currently has 10 caps for the senior Israeli national team.

Sabaa was born to an Arab-Israeli family in Majd al-Krum, an Arab town located in Galilee in Israel’s Northern District.

Taking it to social media, Diaa Saba, 27, shared a photo of him in a flight headed to Dubai.

The development came after the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Israel signed an accord on 15 September to normalise relations during a ceremony at the White House in the United States (US).
