Valletta FC secure a lucrative signing when they reached an agreement to sign Brazilian winger Lucas Campos from Brazilian giants Botafogo.
Campos fell on the Valletta FC radar on request of new coach Jose Antonio Cardoso Mendes who asked the club to scout the player.
The scouting process was led by Valletta FC, the club’s Head of Recruitment and Data Analyst Ben Lanzon and committee member Edward Bartolo and it looks like it convinced the Citizens to close a deal for the player.
In fact, Campos has agreed to join Valletta on a deal until 2022.
Campos came through Botafogo’s youth ranks before being promoted to the first team of where he played in the Brazilian top division. In the last few years he also had spells at Nova Iguacu and Tubarao SC before returning to Botafogo.
Campos is Valletta’s second signing of the January transfer window after on Monday they completed a deal to sign midfielder Davide Paglia.
Campos and Paglia are expected to make their debut for Valletta when the Citizens return to Premier League action on January 22 against Balzan.
