Gżira United completed their first major signing when they reached an agreement with Brazilian defender Rodolfo Soares.

The 32-year-old Soares had announed earlier this month that he was leaving his former club Hibernians to seek pastures new after seven years with the club from Paola.

Yesterday, he agreed personal terms with the Maroons and put pen to paper on a two-year contract.

At Gżira, Soares will join his former team-mate Andrew Cohen with whom he won several honours at Hibernians.

The capture of Soares is a great coup for Gżira as the Brazilian has over the years established himself as one of the best defenders in the Maltese Premier League, helping Hibernians to win two championships and lift the FA Trophy twice.
