Santa Lucia have completed a major transfer coup with the capture of Malta international midfielder Steve Pisani, the Premier League club have confirmed.
The Saints are looking to put behind them a disappointing 2022-23 campaign which saw the team in a fierce relegation battle and only managed to retain their top-flight status when they beat Żejtun Corinthians in the promotion/relegation play-off last May.
Now, Sta Lucia are working hard to add more quality to their squad and have identified Pisani as their perfect midfield reinforcement.
The Sta Lucia top hierarchy held talks with Gżira United over the veteran midfielder and after protracted talks a deal was finally reached this week.
Personal terms with the player were also agreed and Pisani has put pen to paper on a three-year contract.
In Pisani, Sta Lucia are bringing in an established international player who holds a lot of experience in the Premier League.
Pisani came through the youth ranks of San Ġwann before joining Hibernians where he won the FA Trophy twice in 2012 and 2013.
He then had a two-season loan spell with Floriana before joining the Greens on a permanent transfer in 2014 where he spent five seasons.
In 2018-19 he headed to Balzan and played a key role in steering the team to win the FA Trophy, when beating Valletta in the final.
In January 2021, the 30-year-old moved to Gżira United and stayed with the Maroons for the past two and a half years.
