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.
He has also had spells in Italy, Germany and Greece before joining Turkish side Ankaragucu last year.
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.
“Federico was born on 22 August 1991, and plays as a central striker. He chose to compete with the number 91.
“He has a rich CV, having begun his career in Lazio’s academy before moving to England and Manchester United.
“He wore the jerseys of Sampdoria, Stuttgart, Nottingham Forest and Panathinaikos among others.
“We welcome Federico to Apoel, and wish him to celebrate titles and many successes with the blue and yellow shield on his chest.”
