The 31-year-old has signed for Apoel, who are second in the Cypriot first division.



The club are just one point behind league leaders AEK Larnaca.

The former Red Devils prodigy became a cult hero after netting two winning goals in his first two senior appearances in 2009.

The player is, of course, Federico Macheda.

He made 36 appearances for the club in which he managed to score five goals before eventually signing for Cardiff City in 2014.

However he failed to impress and has now been loaned to Apoel.

The Cypriot side announced the signing of the Rome-born striker with a statement that read: "We have reached an agreement with Ankaragucu for the loan of Federico Macheda.  It is valid until May 2023.
