Balzan FC have continued their transfer activity when they signed goalkeeper Rudy Briffa and Serbian midfielder Milos Mijic, the Times of Malta can confirm.
The Reds are bidding to bounce back from a disappointing 2020-21 season which saw them engaged in a relegation dog fight and managed to preserve their top-flight status in the latter part of the campaign.
Briffa has spent the majority of his career with Hibernians after coming through their youth academy but his chances of first-team football were very limited.
Last season, the 24-year-old spent the campaign with relegation strugglers Tarxien Rainbows but has now returned to the Paolites.
Now the young goalkeeper has left the Paola club as his contract expired and has agreed terms to join Balzan on a one-year contract.
On the other hand, Mijic arrives in Malta for his first spell in Maltese football.
The 31-year-old attacking midfielder has also put pen to paper on a one-year contract.
Mijic brings with him a wealth of experience in Serbian football.
The attacking midfielder has spent his career with to-tier sides OK Belgrade, Mladost and Novi Pazar. He also had a spell at Slovenian top division NK Domzale.
In 2020, he played in Montenegro with Podgorica while he spent the second part of last season at Serbian club Novi Pazar.
