Leighton Grech set to be retained by Birkirkara

bkara-fcLeighton Grech could be retained by Birkirkara this season after an impressive season with Qormi, also earning a national team call-up for the friendly game against Albania in March.

A product of Hibernians, Grech had serveral spells on loan with Vittoriosa Stars but was eventually transferred to Birkirkara in summer 2011. However after spending most of the time on the bench, he was transferred on loan once again. He spent the last two years on loan with Qormi.

As regards foreigners, Matheus Bissi has already joined the squad for pre-season training while Nikola Vukanac and Alejandro Mendoza are expected in Malta this week. Another two new foreign players will be joining the squad for a trial this week as well.

On the other hand, the future of Jhonnattann Benites da Conceicao, Frank Temile and Haruna Shola Shodiya is still unknown.
