Ħamrun Spartans are set to complete the signing of Brazilian winger Cláudio Murici, from Gozitan side Għajnsielem.
The 24-year-old winger caught the interest of the Premier League leaders with his performances for Għajnsielem this season, including his display in the FA Trophy third round match against the Spartans which saw the latter only prevail 3-1 after extra-time.
The Spartans agreed personal terms with the player this week and he completed his transfer on Wednesday after he successfully completed a medical test.
Murici is in his second season in Maltese football as he was brought to our islands by Żejtun Corinthians last season before he moved to Gozitan league last summer.
This season, Murici made six appearances with Għajnsielem scoring three goals.
The Brazilian is now in line to make his debut with the Spartans on Sunday when they face Sirens.
Murici is Ħamrun Spartans third signing this month after the club already signed Brazilian goalkeeper Winiston Cristian Santos and Swedish forward Kalle Holmberg.
Holmberg arrived in Malta on Wednesday and is due to attend his first training session with the Spartans on Thursday.
On the other hand, Spartans coach Branko Nisevic is buoyed by the return of Malta international winger Joseph Mbong who cut short his loan spell with Israeli club Ironi Kiryat Shmoni.
Mbong is expected to be included in the Spartans squad for the first time this weekend against Sirens.
