Birkirkara have reached an agreement with Sta Lucia FC to sign goalkeeper Julani Archibald until the end of the season.
The Stripes have been looking for a goalkeeper to add more cover to their squad after regular goalkeeper Daniel Fernandes has been ruled out by injury for six weeks.
Initially, Birkirkara had signed Italian goalkeeper Luca Savelloni at the end of December. However, the towering custodian played only one match with the club, against Balzan last week, and decided to leave the club due to personal reasons.
Birkirkara have re-entered the market for a goalkeeper and opened talks with Sta Lucia to sign Archibald.
The St Kitts and Nevis international goalkeeper lost his place in the Sta Lucia starting XI in recent weeks following the arrival of Justin Haber and the Saints were ready to let him leave.
An agreement was reached between the two clubs so that Archibald joins the Stripes until the end of the season.
Archibald is expected to attend his first training session with Birkirkara on Monday and could make his debut on Wednesday when the Saints face Ħamrun Spartans.
