Birkirkara have completed the signing of Ghana defender Edward Sarpong.
The Stripes were expected to be busy on the market after parting ways with five players this month and had targeted a defensive reinforcement as one of their priorities.
Birkirkara said that they have agreed terms with 27-year-old Sarpong who put pen to paper on a deal until the end of the season.
“Birkirkara FC is delighted to announce the acquisition of Edward Sarpong, a dynamic twenty-seven-year-old player,” the Premier League club said in a statement.
“Renowned for his explosive capabilities as a wing-back, Sarpong excels on both the left and right flanks, showcasing remarkable speed and a keen desire to surge forward when in possession.
“He was last playing with FK Dziugas Telsias in Lithuania and he featured in 23 matches throughout this year. His versatility is a valuable asset for coach Brian Chetcuti, as he is adept at performing in roles such in defence and on the flanks.
“We extend a warm welcome to Edward and extend our best wishes for a successful and fulfilling tenure with our club.”
Sarpong is Birkirkara’s second signing this month after the club reached an agreement to sign Malta U-21 striker Andrea Zammit.
Sarpong and Zammit are expected to make their debut in Sunday’s Premier League clash against Sta Lucia.
