BOV Premier League side Marsaxlokk have added another big name to their list of newly signed players with former Gzira United midfielder Nikolai Muscat as the Southseasiders are currently affecting a transfer coup ahead of the new season.
“We are thrilled to announce that 26-year-old International Maltese midfielder, Nikolai Muscat joins Marsaxlokk F.C,” a club statement read on Friday.
“On behalf of Marsaxlokk F.C. we welcome Niki within our team and wish him the best of luck!”
Muscat is coming off a successful season with the Maroons after leading the team with the captain’s armband and was one of the club’s representatives within the Malta National Team last season in Euro2024 qualifiers against North Macedonia, Italy, England, and most recently Ukraine.
The central midfielder finished his Premier League campaign with 24 appearances and a goal to his name in a 3-1 defeat to Birkirkara in April.
He leaves Gzira, the club he joined from San Gwann back in 2017 and now joins a Marsaxlokk squad with no less than seven new players as well as a new coach after Pablo Doffo was let go after the end of the 2022/23 season. Now under the mentorship of Winston Muscat, the club has confirmed goalkeeper Marko Drobnjak, Leandro Aguirre, Santiago Ferraris, and Dale Mifsud after all four were instrumental in the club’s success in remaining a top-tier club, as well as reaching the final of the FA Trophy. Interestingly, it was a semifinal victory against Muscat and Gzira which paved the way for Marsaxlokk’s historic final berth.
Together with Muscat, Marsaxlokk will now be banking on the likes of Jacob Walker, Jake Ghio, Armah Ayo Vaikainah, Anson Saliba, Diego Pires Dall’Oca, as well as Ryan Scicluna who had initially joined the club on loan from Birkirkara in January.
