The Reds are looking to strengthen their squad ahead of their return to European football and on Monday they had already confirmed that they had secured the services of Malta international midfielder Triston Caruana.

On Tuesday, Balzan FC announced a defensive addition with the capture of Andre Prates.

“Balzan F.C. is pleased to announce the signing of 29-year-old Brazilian central defender Andre Fausto Prates Rodriguez Junior,” the Premier League side said in a statement.

“Andre arrived in Malta in season 2020/2021 and has since played over 70 Premier League games in the last three seasons establishing himself as one of Malta’s most consistent and uncompromising left-footed central defenders.

“Balzan F.C.’s scouting department continues to work hard looking to recruit players for its squad in preparation for its upcoming Europa Conference League games which are scheduled to start in mid-July.”

Prates arrived in Malta in 2020 when he joined Santa Lucia FC with whom he stayed at the club for two seasons.

Last summer, the Brazilian defender left the Saints to join Gudja United.

Prates was a regular member of Gudja United’s starting XI, making 11 appearances and scoring two goals.
