Hapoel Tel Aviv coach Dror Kashtan finally signed the contact that will make him the next coach of the national team on Tuesday.
Kashtan met with Israel Football Association chairman Itche Menahem at IFA headquarters in Ramat Gan to finalize the two-year deal that was essentially agreed upon over two months ago.
Their first order of business on Wednesday will be to fly to Switzerland for Friday's Euro 2008 qualifying draw.
Ironically the signing came just one day after new Hapoel Tel Aviv owner Lev Leviev announced that outgoing national coach Avraham Grant, whom Kashtan is replacing, will take over at Hapoel.
