Malta international defender Zach Muscat will be signing for Italian Lega Pro side Akragas. Muscat is expected to sign a deal until the end of the season.

Zach Muscat played for St. Andrews and Melita before joining the Pietà Hotspurs Nursery. With the Hotspurs, he made his debut at senior level in the First Division. In summer 2012, he moved to Birkirkara where he made his Premier League debut. With the Stripes, he won the Premier League championship in 2012/13, the FA Trophy in 2014/15 and two Super Cups in 2013 and 2014.
