Fire loan out for Orr Barouch

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Fire loaned out Israeli-born striker Orr Barouch on Thursday to Israeli side Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv F.C. Barouch will join Bnei Yehuda immediately.

"This loan provides Orr with an opportunity to earn consistent playing time," head coach Frank Klopas said in a team statement. "Orr was interested in playing in Israel and Bnei Yehuda was a good fit. We look forward to monitoring Orr's progress and development while he is playing in Israel."

Barouch has not been used much since the arrival of Dutch striker Sherjill MacDonald making Thursday's move a prudent one for all involved.

For some weeks now the Fire had been having discussions with Israeli clubs on the potential loan or transfer of Barouch, making Thursday's news seem like an eventuality.
