Former Seria A side Siena announce signing of Maltese midfielder Matthew Guillaumier

 - News - Feb 4 SHARE ON:

Former Hamrun Spartans star midfielder Matthew Guillaumier has signed with Italian Serie C club A.C.N. Siena 1904. The signing comes a month filled with speculation that the local player will be signed by an Italian club.

The deal will be a loan with an option to buy in the summer, once their important season ends. Guillaumier will be aiming to help the club reach a playoff spot and maybe achieve an unexpected promotion to Serie B.

The signing came as a shock as it was being reported that the frontrunner for the local player were Serie B side Reggina 1914. The deal couldn’t materialize as they couldn’t sign Guillaumier without offloading a player. When it was made public news that Reggina wouldn’t be able to sign him, Siena swooped in in the dying parts of the January transfer window.

The 23-year old already has 14 caps for Malta where he has scored one goal against Faroe Islands. He was also voted as player of the year in the 2020-21 season.
