Claudio Frances, Ryan Spiteri join Tarxien

Tarxien Rainbows secured the services of Argentine striker Claudio Frances and Hamrun Spartans striker Ryan Spiteri. Frances signed a one-and-a-half year deal with the Rainbows while Spiteri joins the club on loan until the end of the season.

A product of Talleres de Córdoba, twenty-three year old Frances has always played for the club apart from a short spell with Defensores de Belgrano, moving to Malta in summer 2014 to join Pietà Hotspurs. With the Hotspurs, Frances left a very good impression despite the fact that the club was relegated to Division 1, scoring eight goals.

A product of Hamrun Spartans, Ryan Spiteri made his Premier League debut in season 2011/12. Spiteri is an Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 international.

Tarxien had released Brazilians Anderson Raimundo da Silva and Danilo Meira Santos.
