Nicky Vella joins Mosta

Mosta secured the services of thirty-year old goalkeeper Nicholas Vella from Birkirkara on loan until the end of the season.

A product of San Gwann, Vella had joined Valletta in summer 2006, first on loan and then on a definite transfer. He left the club to join Tarxien Rainbows in 2011 but in 2014 moved back to Valletta. Vella, who was also a member of the Malta national team, spent season 2019/20 on loan with Pieta Hotspurs before making a move to Birkirkara last summer.

Mosta have also signed Colombian midfielder Santiago Martínez Perlaza. The twenty-one year old played for Santos Laguna and Tampico Madero in Mexico.

The Blues had earlier signed Brazilian Pedro Luiz Soares Gusso from Lija Athletic.

Meanwhile Andreas Vella and Matias Muchardi are expected to move elsewhere.
