Valletta are set to sign Brazilian twenty five year old striker Taylon Nicolas Correa Marcolino.
The Brazilian forward had played for Hibernians in season 2018/19 but his last match – ironically, the Championship Decider against Valletta – was marred by controversy after he alleged that an individual sent someone to his house to offer him money in order not to play.
Taylon had joined Hibernians from Internacional Limeira in summer 2018. Following his departure, he moved to Bulgaria where he spent a couple of months with Botev Plovdiv in Bulgaria before joining Al-Orooba in the UAE. However, in the January transfer window, he returned to Brazil to join Criciuma EC.
His signing should be the first for the Citizens following the arrival of coach Jesmond Zerafa.
