Anderson Mendes Ribiero has targeted a move to another Premier League club following his release from Hamrun Spartans.

The 31-year-old confirmed that he held talks with Zebbug Rangers but his sole interest is  for a Premier League move after a one-year spell with the Spartans.

Ribiero has ruled out dropping down to the third tier of Maltese football because he feels that he is still capable of performing at the highest level.

“The second division is not an option at the moment. I’d like to think I haven’t lost the ability to score goals and play at the highest level,” he told sportinmalta.com.

“If I’m not going to play in the Premier League I may look further a field.”

Ribiero has scored 25 goals during his two seasons in Malta, first with Tarxien Rainbows in 2009/2010 and last season with the black and red Hamrun shirt.

Latest transfers

Premier League Division side Tarxien Rainbows signed Brazilian striker Danilo Meira Santos

The 28 year old will be the third foreigner for the Rainbows squad after the club renewed the contract of Daniel Mariano Bueno and Lucas De Castro. Last season he played for Veranópolis.

Qormi FC have completed a double transfer coup on Tuesday, with the signing of Hibernians left back Matthew Gauci and wide midfielder Leighton Grech from Birkirkara.

Gauci and Grech were both surplus to their clubs’ requirements after both were left out from the Hibernians and Birkirkara squads respectively. Matthew and Leighton, both Under 21 internationals, played on loan last season with Hamrun Spartans and Vittoriosa Stars.

    Ma tantx ghandu x’jinvestiga ghax ir-risposta kulhadd jafa minbarra int. Kul club ghandu l-policies tieghu ta kif jahdem u l-club ta Valletta mhux b’inqas. Bhal ma l-club ghandu policy li kul player u staff jithallas kul l’ahhar tax-xahar (minghajr ma jaqbzu gurnata wahda u minghajr ma c-chq jibbownsja qisu kangaroo), ghandu wkoll il-policy li l-bonuses kollha tar-rebh tal-kampjonat jithallsu f’Novembru ta kul sena.
