Marsaxlokk are set to complete their first signing of the January transfer window as they are closing on signing defender Karl Micallef, from Gudja United.
The Southerners have been looking to strengthen their squad ahead of the second part of the season and had identified Karl Micallef as the perfect reinforcement as the club looks to push their bid to secure European football this season.
Marsaxlokk have been the revelation of the 2023-24 Premier League campaign as the club, in their second season in the Premier League, are currently fourth in the standings with 19 points.
Micallef had been on the books of Gudja United for 18 months after joining the Southerners from Malta champions Ħamrun Spartans.
He had been a regular member of the first team, however, in the past few weeks he made it clear that he was seeking a new challenge.
The former Malta defender held talks with the Gudja United top hierarchy where he reached a mutual agreement to rescind his contract.
It was here, that Micallef, held talks with Marsaxlokk and a deal is on the verge of being sealed as the two parties are very close to an agreement.
For Micallef, Marsaxlokk are set to be the third club of his career after he also donned the colours of Pieta Hotspurs.
