Champions Birkirkara secured the services of former Valletta striker – Nigerian striker Frank Temile. He signed a one-year deal.

After a fantastic season with Valletta in 2007/08, Frank Temile was transferred to Dynamo Kyiv in Ukraine. However his Ukrainian experience was rather disappointing as he only played a few matches with the club’s second team, apart from a short loan spell with PFC Olexandria.

Earlier this week, Birkirkara signed Senegalese striker Demba Touré who played for Valletta last season.

Since last season Spanish defender Alejandro Mendoza, Serbian defender Nikola Vukanac and Nigerian striker Harun Shola Shodiya were retained. Rodrigo Pereira and Jhonnattann Benites da Conceicao are expected to sign for clubs in China and Brazil respectively while Yosimar Hernandez and Joselito dos Reis were not retained.
