Maccabi Haifa is expected to complete today (Monday) the signing of midfielder Dia Saba, on a contract for two and a half years.
Saba (30), passed the medical tests and his conditions were agreed upon in a meeting between him and the heads of the club, as published here yesterday.
Together with the signing bonus, the deal is valued at over half a million euros per season.
Behind the scenes, the Greens fought for his services against Maccabi Tel Aviv, but the attractive offer, along with his desire to sign with Carmel, ultimately prevailed. Also, Saba canceled his trip to Turkey, this after he had already agreed on Ankaragucu. "Seva's signing is a statement ", said officials at the Green Club, "We went at him with all our might.
It wasn't easy due to the many offers he had."

But in Haifa they don't stop.
In a quick move, the champions are trying to sign midfielder Osher Davide from Belgian side Standard Liege.
His agent, Dodo Dahan, will try to close an arrangement where David will go on loan with an option to buy in the summer.
Haifa's professional team is interested in thickening the squad in a way that will allow competition in every position on the field and will allow to diversify the attack game.
The president of the club, Yaakov Shahar, gave the green light to the move.
Even before that, after the draw against Bnei Rayna (0:0), a meeting was held between the management and the professional team where there was an understanding that refreshing the staff was necessary.
When the decision was made, Haifa switched gears on the issue of Saba and David.
The first concluded, the second may follow suit until Wednesday, when the transfer window closes.
