Young Zak Cassar heading in the other direction
Birkirkara are closing in on a major transfer coup when they reached an agreement in principle to sign Brazilian midfielder Diego Venancio from Floriana.
Young defender Zak Cassar is expected to head to the other direction as Floriana completed a second swap deal with a fellow Premier League club in the space of a week.
Venancio was subject to interest from Floriana’s neighbouring rivals Valletta last week, but the Greens pulled out of negotiations.
Birkirkara immediately entered the race to sign the Brazilian midfielder and it looks like a deal could be about to be completed between the two in the coming days.
As part of the deal, the Stripes have let young Zak Cassar move to Floriana. Last season, Cassar last season was on loan at Senglea Athletic.
Meanwhile, Birkirkara’s transfer activity is set to continue in the coming days as the Stripes are working on signing a foreign goalkeeper.
Earlier, this month the Stripes had looked to be interested in signing Valletta and Malta goalkeeper Henry Bonello but no deal was agreed with the Citizens.
The Stripes have now decided to move away from negotiations for the towering goalkeeper and are closing in on signing a foreign goalkeeper.
The overseas goalkeeper, who has played in Malta last season, is expected to arrive in Malta on Saturday night.
