James Arthur is set to continue his career in the Maltese Premier League as sources have told the Times of Malta that the Ghana midfielder is on the verge of agreeing a deal with Gudja United
Arthur started the season with Valletta FC and made 13 appearances with the capital club, scoring one goal.
However, last week the Citizens have decided to part ways with the 23-year-old and released him from his contract.
The player is understood to have been keen to continue playing in Malta and attracted the interest of a number of clubs.
Sta Lucia FC were one of the clubs who looked at the possibility of bringing in the player during the January transfer window but after holding preliminary talks with the player they decided to end their interest.
Here, it was Gudja United who entered the race to sign the player and an agreement is understood to have been finally reached between both parties.
Arthur is expected to finalise his move to Gudja United in the coming hours and will sign a deal until the end of the season.
