Valletta Football Club have announced that they have released striking duo Flavio Cheveresan and Oke Akpoveta.
Cheveresan and Akpoveta joined the Citizens at the start of the season but have struggled to find the net during the first part of the season.
Cheveresan, who was in his second stint in Maltese football after donning the colours of Floriana FC during season 2020-21, made ten appearances for Valletta FC but only managed to find the net once.
On the other hand, Akpoveta collected 12 appearances with the Premier League club, scoring four goals.
“Valletta Football Club would like to announce that it has reached a mutual agreement with Flavio Cheveresan and Oke Akpoveta to end their respective contracts with the Valletta Football Club,” the Premier League club said in a statement.
“The Club would like to wish Flavio and Oke all the best for their future.
“The Club is already working to replace the respective players in the upcoming January transfer window, to make the necessary signings to strengthen the Squad.”
The Times of Malta can confirm that the Citizens have already started to scour the market to find valid replacements.
In fact, sources have told the Times of Malta that the Citizens have targeted a forward that already plies his trade in the Premier League while are also looking to bring in a forward from outside the Maltese market.
Valletta are looking to turn around their fortunes after a rather disappointing start to the season.
In fact, the Citizens are seventh in the standings on 21 points, and still with a lot of work to do to push their way back in the reckoning for a top-three finish and a place in European football.
