Sta Lucia FC have reached an agreement to sign Italian midfielder Gianmarco Conti, the Times of Malta can confirm.
The Italian midfielder is not a new face to Maltese football as he arrived to our islands in 2016 when he joined Gżira United.
With the Maroons, Conti had two spells. In his first season in 2016-17 he made 30 appearances with the Premier League club and scored three goals and provided four assists.
Then he returned to Italy but was re-signed by Gżira United in season January 2019 when he made 12 appearances and netted one goal for the remaining of the 2018-19.
The following campaign, Conti was a regular starter for Gżira as donned the shirt 16 times and scored one goal.
Last season, he was on the books of Serie D side Campodarsego.
In Conti, Sta Lucia FC will be adding a player of huge experience having head spells at Pordenone, Monza and Lavagnese among others.
No doubt, his addition will add more steel to the Saints who started their Premier League campaign with a 2-2 draw against Floriana.
Incidentally, Conti could make his debut for his new club against his former employers Gżira United on Saturday, August 22.
