Valletta FC have announced the signing of Argentine attacking midfielder Santiago Ferraris.
The 24-year-old arrives at the capital club after a positive first season in Maltese football as he was on the books of fellow Premier League side Marsaxlokk.
Ferraris arrived at Marsaxlokk FC at the start of last season and played a key role in helping the southerners to a successful return to the Maltese top-flight as he helped the team to avoid relegation.
Added to that, Marsaxlokk had a fine run in the FA Trophy where they managed to reach the final only to lose to Birkirkara 2-0.
At Marsaxlokk, Ferraris made 24 league appearances and scored two goals.
Now, the Argentine forward is expected to step up his game as he takes a bigger challenge as a Valletta FC player.
The Citizens are keen to put behind them a disappointing campaign which saw them fail to challenge for a domestic honour and missed out on a place in UEFA club competitions this summer.
Prior to his arrival in Malta, Ferraris spent a few seasons in the youth ranks of Argentine club Arsenal FC.
