Pfeffer To Israel?

There's a report today that (according to those who can read Hebrew) Zach Pfeffer is set to sign with defending Israeli champs Hapoel Be'er Sheva.  Assuming this happens the Rapids would get some allocation money out of whatever nominal transfer fee the league gets for Pfeffer.  I can't imagine a guy with no MLS team minutes this season will command a large fee, but every little bit helps.

Hapoel Be'er Sheva were eliminated in the playoff round of the Champions League y Celtic and dropped into the Europa League where they'll face Inter, Sparta Prague, and Southampton int he group stage.  I assume Pfeffer is interesting to them partially because he's Jewish and as such can almost automatically obtain Israeli citizenship and not count against the foreigner limit in the league.
