Valletta are set to sign a second player who was on the books of Birkirkara FC last season when they reached an agreement with Brazilian winger Caio Prado.
The Brazilian winger has been an impressive performer for Birkirkara for the last two seasons and had attracted the interest of a number of top clubs in Malta. But it was Valletta who won the race to sign the speedy winger who is set to pen to paper on a two-year deal with an option for a third.
Caio Prado becomes the second former Birkirkara FC player to have joined Valletta this summer after earlier this week the Times of Malta had revealed that the Citizens had agreed terms to sign Italian goalkeeper Alessandro Guarnone.
The 26-year-old Caio arrived in Malta in 2019 after spending his career in his homeland Brazil where he played for Coritiba, Andraus-Pr and Gremio de Esportes Maringa.
At Birkirkara, Caio immediately left his mark and became a key member of Andre Paus squad.
Last season, Caio made 20 appearances for Birkirkara and scored four goals to help the team finish fourth in the Premier League and qualification to the UEFA Conference League.
