Montebello moves to Tarxien on loan
Tarxien Rainbows have reached an agreement with BOV Premier League rivals Valletta to sign striker Luke Montebello on loan until the end of the season.
The Rainbows, who opened their league campaign with an eye-catching 2-0 win over Sliema Wanderers on Saturday, have been looking all summer to bring in a target man and coach Jacques Scerri identified Montebello as a perfect candidate.
The 20-year-old returned to Valletta this summer after a loan spell with Zebbug Rangers in the second part of last season. He also formed part of the Citizens’ squad in the Europa League qualifiers.
Montebello is expected to make his debut for the Rainbows on Friday when they face Birkirkara at the National Stadium.
