Could Benny Feilhaber be on the move to Israel?

It seems the Israeli Premier League champions, Hapoel Be'er Sheva, made a bid for Feilhaber, the Sporting Kansas City playmaker who was an MLS MVP finalist in 2015.

The club, on a hot streak at the moment coming off their third ever league title last season and set to play in the upcoming Europa League tournament group stage for the first time, appear to have been rebuffed in their bid for Feilhaber, however, according to a report from's Sam Stejskal on Thursday:

Feilhaber, 31, has scored six goals and seven assists in 24 league appearances so far this season. Prior to joining MLS via the New England Revolution in 2011, he played in Europe for German side Hamburg, English team Derby County and Danish club Aarhus.
