Birkirkara FC signed twenty-seven year old Brazilian attacking midfielder Francisco Diego Venancio da Silva from Floriana. He signed a two-year deal with the Stripes.
Diego Silva played for Ceará SC, AE Tiradentes, Ferroviário AC and Caucaia EC in Brazil before joining Senglea Athletic in January 2019. He was an instant hit in the BOV Premier League, moving to Floriana six months late, spending the last two years with the Greens.
Birkirkara, who had earlier confirmed coach Andre Paus and one of their foreigners, Claudio Bonanni, have also signed Jed Valletta but opted not to retain Alessandro Guarnore, Caio Prado, Alex Paixao and Reginald Alidor. Guarnone and Prado will be joining Valletta while Paixao signed for Balzan.
