Ħamrun Spartans have reached an agreement with Birkirkara FC over the signing of midfielder Matthew Guillaumier, a top official from Birkirkara FC confirmed to the Times of Malta.
The Spartans have been pursuing the signature of the talented Malta international midfielder for a number of weeks now but the clubs had failed to reach an agreement on the transfer fee.
However, the impasse was finally broken on Monday when the Spartans top hierarchy met with the Birkirkara officials and tabled an offer that has now been agreed by the Stripes.
It is understood now that in the coming hours the players will finalise personal terms with the Spartans before his registration papers are filed at the Malta FA before the transfer window shuts on Wednesday.
The acquisition of Guillaumier is another major transfer coup from the Spartans who this summer have already signed two other young Maltese internationals in Juan Corbalan and Joseph Mbong.
Surely, Guillaumier’s arrival at Ħamrun Spartans will further add more quality to Mark Buttigieg’s squad and help the Reds in their bid to at least challenge for a place in European football next season.
On the other hand, the departure of Guillaumier is expected to force Birkirkara to enter the transfer market and are expected to try and sign a Maltese player as his replacement.
