His performances, did not go unnoticed by the national team selectors who included the young midfielder in their plans.

It is understood that Marsaxlokk have opened talks with Gżira United for the 26-year-old and an agreement is closed to being sealed, in what would be a major statement of intent from the southseasiders.

This season, Marsaxlokk are under the charge of Winston Muscat who has replaced Pablo Doffo as first-team coach.
