Mosta FC have announced the signing of goalkeeper Ini Akpan.
The Nigerian-born goalkeeper boasts a lot of experience in the Premier League, having been on the books of several top-flight clubs in the last few years.
In fact, Akpan arrived in Malta in 2011 when he joined Sliema Wanderers before he moved to Lija Athletic.
In 2013, he joined Birkirkara on loan until he made his move to the Stripes a permanent one.
In season 2017-18, Akpan moved to Floriana with whom he went on to win the Premier League title in 2019-20 season.
At the end of last summer Akpan decided to take a break from his career to be close to his son who needed treatment for a severe illness.
But now, the 37-year-old has felt that it was time to return to competitive football and has agreed terms with Mosta.
Akpan replaces Serbian goalkeeper Marko Jovicic who was released during the January transfer window.
Akpan becomes Mosta’s second signing during the January transfer window as the Blues have already signed Ghana forward Dennis Agyare Antwi.
