Msida St Joseph and Valletta reached an agreement on goalkeeper Manuel Bartolo. The former San Gwann shot stopper will be Valletta’s player by Tuesday. Defender Steve Bezzina will join Msida St Joseph as part of the deal.

“Out of all the teams that made offers, Valletta has been interested since the end of the league so I feel comfortable with them, the move to Valletta provides a great opportunity for me to gain experience in international competitions and to challenge every year for honours,” Bartolo said. “I have made this decision not against Birkirkara or Floriana (last two previous clubs) but for this great opportunity and the good of my own development.” At the end Manuel, wanted to thank the Msida St Joseph committee for the opportunity that they gave him in the Premeier League and also grateful for allowing him to conclude his dream move.

This portal also contacted Valletta vice president Paul Spiteri as he confirmed the goalkeeper is set to join the club by Tuesday ” We have a deal in place with Msida St Joseph. We reached an agreement with the second division club”.

On the other side, an Imsida St Joseph spokesman confirmed the deal is in place and also confirmed that Steve Bezzina will be sold to Mosta in the coming days.

Issa dan  l-istagun ha ikun hemm kompetizzjoni bejn Manuel Bartolo u Yenz……  Biex tirbah kampjonat trid ikollok riserva tajba ukoll… u jekk kieku ma giex Manuel Bartolo xorta ridtu riserva…. – Joshua Cacciattolo
