Michael Mifsud returns with Valletta

Valletta secured the services of Malta international striker Michael Mifsud. He signed a two-and-a-half year deal.

The thirty-four year old striker obtained the release from Sliema Wanderers on Tuesday after an eighteen-month stay and was therefore free to negotiate with a new club. He signed eight goals for Sliema this season.

Michael Mifsud started his career with Sliema Wanderers, before moving to play abroad for Kaiserslautern in Germany, Lillestrom in Norway, Coventry and Barnsley in England.

He had a short spell with Valletta between March and May 2010, leaving his mark with seven goals in seven league matches and helping them win the U*BET FA Trophy and the National League 100 Anniversary Cup. In February 2011, he joined Qormi but his signing was not enough to spare the Yellow Blacks from playing in the Relegation Pool. The following summer, he re-joined Valletta, signing a long-term deal with the club. However after winning the Championship and two Super Cups, his contract was terminated by mutual agreement at the end of the second year.

Mifsud signed a one-year deal with Australian A-League side Melbourne Heart in September 2013 but was released in March and joined Sliema Wanderers in summer 2014.
