Jorge Santos Silva joins Birkirkara

Brazilian striker Jorge Santos Silva joined Birkirkara after his contract with Sliema Wanderers was terminated by mutual agreement.

The 24-year old striker moved to Malta in summer 2010 to join Vittoriosa Stars after playing for Daegu in Korea. With the Stars, he scored seven goals in 24 matches.

This summer, he moved to Sliema Wanderers, scoring three goals in fifteen matches.

A few days ago, Jorge together with Jackson Lima Sequeira made a formal request to the Malta Football Association for their release over alleged due salaries.

Jackson Lima’s contract was also terminated by mutual agreement and is now expected to join Hibernians in time for the derby against Tarxien Rainbows.
