Birkirkara are in advanced talks to hand new contracts to defender Cain Attard and Yannik Yankam, the Times of Malta can confirm.

The Stripes are currently working hard to try and bolster their squad for the upcoming season as they look to further strengthen their quest for domestic honours following their triumph in the FA Trophy this season.

Attard and Yankam have been two pillars of Giovanni Tedesco’s team this season and the Stripes are determined to keep hold of their services beyond this season.

Sources have told the Times of Malta that the club opened talks with the Malta international players and negotiations are currently at an advanced stage with an announcement likely to be made in the coming days.

Attard has enjoyed a very impressive season for Birkirkara as the wing back has been a mainstay in Tedesco’s team and also stood out when he was asked to play as one of the team’s centrebacks.

His performances in this new position have also not gone unnoticed by Malta coach Michele Marcolini who used Attard in his new position also during the opening Euro 2024 qualifiers against North Macedonia and Italy.

On the other hand, Yankam has enjoyed arguably his best season for Birkirkara this season.

The 25-year-old young attacking midfielder has been an influential figure for the team as he made 25 appearances for the club and scoring five goals.

His form has inevitably helped him to force his way into the national team as he made his full debut against North Macedonia where he managed to score his first international goal.

It was no surprise that Yankam was nominated for the MFA Player of the Year award where he finished only second to Ħamrun Spartans’ Matthew Guillaumier.
