Floriana FC have announced the signing of Norwegian attacking midfielder Sindre Osestad.
The Times of Malta had revealed on Friday that the 23-year-old was on the verge of joining last season’s FA Trophy winners after becoming a free agent.
Osestad has impressed the club’s scouting talent who are seeing him as a young talent with a great future ahead of him
The young attacking midfielder started his career with Giv Akt before moving to IK Start II.
In October 2020 he joined Grorud IL.
Osestad’s transfer with Floriana was made through a familiar figure in Maltese football, Ton Caanen, representing CAAA Base Ltd which is one of the biggest football agencies in the world.
Caanen was involved in Maltese football a few years ago when he was in charge of Valletta FC with whom he won the Premier League title.
Osestad is expected to make his debut with Floriana next weekend in the much-awaited derby against Valletta.
Osestad is unlikely to be Floriana’s last signing this month as the Greens are desperate to bring in more reinforcements upfront.
Floriana have been giving a trial to Ivory Coast forward Thomas Toure.
Toure, who also holds French citizenship, has been training with the club for the past week and the club is likely to offer him a contract until the end of the season.
Added to that Floriana are working on two other acquisitions in the attacking department as the club are looking to step up their charge of a top-four finish that would see them earn a return to European football.
Last weekend, Floriana’s quest suffered a blow when they were beaten by Birkirkara 2-1, leaving the team in seventh place on 25 points, five behind fourth-placed Hibernians.
