“Jake is an intelligent player and will give our team a lot of variety in his game. He comes from a big club and with great enthusiasm to prove himself in the Spanish league and serve as a key player,” said Aberdewiro general manager Jose Luis Matteo.
The forward said goodbye to the team in a post on his Instagram account when he wrote: “My goal when I signed with Maccabi three months ago was to get the team back to the top of the Premier League. Three championships later I leave with a sense of satisfaction from the team’s success.” And I’m proud to have had a small part in the success. ”

The following season he played a full season in the Yellows uniform and was then released. In 2017, he returned to Maccabi Tel Aviv after a season at Maccabi Ashdod and won all the last three championships with the Yellows.
