In the coming days Valletta Football Club will be making their first signings for the coming season. These are Sliema Wanderers FC midfielder Michele Sansone and 19-year-old central defender, and captain of San Ġwann FC, Christian Gauci.
 
Sansone, will turn 23 next July, and is a former player of the Maltese national under-21 team. Last January he was close in joining Birkirkara F.C.
 
The acquisition of Sansone is expected to complement well with the talent of Shaun Dimech another young man in midfield, considered among one of the best talents of the present in Maltese football. Both players have already played together with the Maltese national under-21 team.
 
The other acquisition, is that of Christian Gauci of San Ġwann FC. Gauci is considered another interesting promise in Maltese football. The Maltese national under-19 team played 22 times in the Challenge League last season and  scored 2 goals and played an important role in securing third place in the league.
 
Despite his age, this was the fifth season in which the young defender, who is a product of San Gwann Football Nursery, played regularly with the club's main team.
 
Gauci made his debut for San Ġwann FC in the 2016/17 season when he was just 16 years old, and the following season he was in the starting line-up for the first time in a game against Floriana FC.
