Striker Akpoveta, left-back Bradley handed contracts by Valletta FC

Valletta FC are busy working to strengthen their squad ahead of the start of the new season.

The Citizens, now under the charge of coach Thane Micallef, have decided to rejuvenate their squad this summer in a bid to put behind them a disappointing 2021-22 campaign that saw them miss out on a place in Europe.

The Citizens have brought in some interesting overseas players in the past few days who are expected to be confirmed as part of the senior squad for the start of the new campaign next month.

Valletta are expected to have a new forward line next month as they have brought in Nigerian forward Oke Akpoveta who is expected to link up with Brazilian forward Breno.

Akpoveta is a towering 30-year-old forward who spent the majority of his career in Scandinavia where he played for some top clubs Denmark and Sweden in particular.

In fact, after he started his career with Warri Wolves he headed to Denmark and join Brondby in 2011.

He then had spells in Azerbaijan with Ravan Baku before he returned to Denmark where he played for Bronshoj and Lyngby.

In 2016 he moved to Sweden where he played for Dalkurg before he moved to Helsingborg.

Three years later, he had another short stint in Azerbaijan with FK Sabail.

Last year he also had a stint in Saudi Arabia with Al-Thoqbah before moving to Finland where he finished the season with Kokkolan.

Valletta have also handed a contract to French left back Bradley Kamdem.

The 27-year-old spent the majority of his career in the United States where he was on the books of UNLV Rebels, Colorado and St Louis FC among others.

His last club in the US was the second team of Atlanta United.

Meanwhile, Valletta have reconfirmed Albanian defender Eslit Sala for another season.

The Albanian turned out to be one of the best performers for the Citizens in the 2021-22 campaign and has now returned to the club and is expected to play a key role for Thane Micallef in the coming season.

On the other hand, Kilian Bevis was confirmed as another new signing for Valletta FC.

The French winger impressed with Birkirkara FC last season, but despite his encouraging displays, he was not reconfirmed by the Stripes.

Valletta approached the player who has agreed to don their colours for the upcoming season.
