Ħamrun Spartans have completed another major signing when they reached an agreement with Valletta FC to secure the services of Malta international goalkeeper Henry Bonello.
Speculation has been rife during the past few months that linked the towering goalkeeper to the Malta champions and the transfer has been finally been completed on Friday.
Talks between Ħamrun Spartans and Valletta FC were held during this week and a deal was finally agreed which would see Bonello put pen to paper on a five-year contract.
The signing of Bonello is another statement of intent for the Spartans who are hellbent on reconfirming their status as Malta champions for another season and finally represent the country in next season’s UEFA Champions League.
Bonello brings with him a wealth of experience when it comes to challenging for major honours as has been a key figure for Valletta FC since joining the capital club in 2015.
During his spell with Valletta, Bonello has helped the club to win five league titles and an FA Trophy among others to establish himself as the regular goalkeeper for the Malta national team.
Bonello is the Spartans’ third acquisition in the close season after Estonian defender Nikita Baranov and Nigerian forward Franklin Sasere who rejoined the club for another season-long loan from Swiss Super League side Lugano FC.
