Valletta FC have confirmed the signing of Brazilian winger Caio Prado.
As reported by the Times of Malta last week, the former Birkirkara winger has agreed terms with the Citizens and has put pen to paper on a three-year contract.
“Valletta Football Club is pleased to announce the official agreement with Brazilian forward Caio Henrique Rocha de Almeida Prado,” the club said in a statement.
“The 26 year old forward from Maringa PR, Brazil has joined the Citizens from local club Birkirkara FC, and has signed a two-year contract with our club.
“On behalf of all of us at Valletta FC we would like to welcome Caio and wish him all the best with our Club.”
Caio Prado becomes the second former Birkirkara FC player to have joined Valletta this summer after earlier this week the Citizens confirmed the signing of 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.
