Matthew Guillaumier’s hopes of continuing his career abroad are back on track as Reggina have reopened talks with Ħamrun Spartans to take the international midfielder on loan until the end of the season.
Earlier this month, the Spartans had been offered the opportunity to sign French winger Jeremy Menez from Reggina on loan with Guillaumier heading to the Italian side on the same terms.
However, the Spartans pulled out of the deal as in order to sign the former PSG and Milan winger would have incurred lofty expenses in terms of taxes that the French forward had to pay.
Initially, the Spartans had said that Guillaumier would remain at the Malta champions until the end of the season.
But the situation again changed in the last few days when the Serie B club made a new offer to take Guillaumier on loan until the end of the season.
It is understood that the Spartans have opened talks and negotiations between the two clubs are at an advanced stage.
In fact, Guillaumier is likely to play his final match with the Spartans on Sunday when they face Floriana before he heads to Italy to complete his move ahead of the closure of the transfer window on Monday.
Meanwhile, Ħamrun Spartans are working around the clock to bring in a valid replacement for Guillaumier.
The Times of Malta understands that the Spartans are eyeing to sign a quality midfielder who played at top level during his career.
The Malta champions are facing a race against time to complete his signing ahead of Monday’s transfer deadline that shuts at midnight.
