Birkirkara secured the services of Bosnian goalkeeper Mirza Hamzabegovic.
Twenty-four year old Hamzabegovic played for NK Podgrmec and NK Bratstvo Gračanica and is considered as one of the top goalkeepers in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Hamzabegovic could make his debut for the Stripes in the clash with leaders Hibernians on Saturday.
Meanwhile Birkirkara and Qormi have reached an agreement over the permanent transfer of the twenty-four year old winger Leighton Grech.
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, first with Vittoriosa and the last two years on loan with Qormi.
