Malta U-21 striker Andrea Zammit has reached an agreement with Messina Calcio to rescind his contract and is now seeking a new club.
The young forward left Valletta FC this summer to join Italian side Messina but he struggled for first-team football in the Italian Serie C.
Zammit had left a positive impression with the Italian club but his chances of playing more regular football were hampered by a regulation that forces teams to field four Italian U-23 during their domestic matches, with the coach preferring to utilise young homegrown players than fielding the Maltese forward.
The former San Ġwann striker only made three substitute appearances with the club and that prompted Zammit to hold talks with the Messina top hierarchy to leave the club.
Sources told the Times of Malta that Messina were at first reluctant to let Zammit go, but further talks between the player, his agent, and top officials from the club saw them reach an agreement so that his contract would be terminated.
Zammit is now looking to settle his future in the coming days and is looking at various options.
It is understood that he is evaluating some opportunities away from our shores as he is courting interest from clubs in Cyprus and Croatia. Added to that he has attracted strong interest from several top clubs in Malta.
The young forward is taking his time to decide as he wants to join a club where he can play more regularly and allow him to show his talent.
