Tarxien Rainbows continued to strengthen their squad with the signing of Brazilian striker Jorge Santos Silva.
Jorge Santos Silva has already played in Malta for two years between 2010 and 2012. He arrived in summer 2010 to join Vittoriosa Stars. The following season, he moved to Sliema Wanderers but mid-way through the season, he was transferred to Birkirkara. He left the Stripes in July 2012 after playing for them in the UEFA Europa League to join Atletico Paranaense but eventually joined América-RN.
Tarxien had earlier secured the services of Brazilians Ronaille Calheira, Fernando Lopes Alcantara and Everton Souza Santos and Serbian defender Marko Potezica. They also signed Luca Martinelli, Josef Mifsud and Miguel Ciantar on loan from Sliema.
