In his first season, he started 8 times in the basic team, and he was 15 times a substitute. The next season, 2012-2013, he became a basic player in the team. He was 20 times in the starting team and two times a substitute. On 6 January 2013, he scored his first professional goal at the age of 21. This game against Maccabi Haifa ended unfortunately in a 1-4-defeat.

His period on loan in the Rumenian top team was his second passage outside Israel. He was directly selected for the first team in 13 of the last 17 matches, almost every time as a basic player. On 24 April, he made his first goal in the team, against Cluj. It was an important goal, as the game finished in a 1-1 draw. In May, the last month of the season, he made two more goals and gave two assists. However, Dinamo Bucharest was not willing to pay the transfer sum of €100.000, so Elhamed returned to Asjdod. Juni 2015, he started a trial at Club Bruges, to try to get a transfer in this way.

AA Gent

He was injured in the testing period in which MS Asjod claimed him back. In July 2015, he finally got his foreign transfer, as he signed until mid-2019 at AA Gent.
