Valletta FC sign striker Federico Falcone

Argentine striker set for second spell at capital club

Valletta FC have signed Federico Falcone, the Premier League club have announced.

The Argentine forward was on the books of Birkirkara but his spell with the Stripes came to an end this weekend when it was announced that his contract was terminated.

Falcone has been on the books of Birkirkara since 2019 and has made 75 appearances with the club, scoring 28 goals.

For the Argentine forward this will be his second spell after he had joined the capital club in the summer of 2015.

At Valletta, Falcone enjoyed a highly successful stint as he made 46 appearances with the club, scoring 24 goals, helping the club to win the league title in season 2015-16.

The Citizens have been desperate to sign a quality forward this month after they parted ways with two forwards at the start of the month.

In fact, Brazilian forward Flavio Cheveresan and Nigerians striker Oke Akpoveta have left the Citizens.

Falcone is Valletta’s second signing this month as last week they signed Brazilian winger Niltinho.

The 29-year-old made his first appearance for Valletta on Sunday during his team’s disappointing 1-1 draw with Pieta Hotspurs.

Falcone is expected to attend his first training session with Valletta FC on Monday afternoon and could make his debut in the FA Trophy clash against Żabbar St Patrick on Sunday.
