Malta striker Michael Mifsud, 32, has agreed terms with Australia’s Melbourne Heart but is yet to finalise a deal.

Club chief executive Scott Munn told SBS Heart terms have been agreed " but until we finalise a deal and sign a contract we are not prepared to make any public statements."

He later said: "Just to be clear. We have not agreed or signed anything."

Munn told SBS: "We hope to get this deal over the line because his presence would boost our home gates for sure because there are many Maltese living in Melbourne… He is a hero among the Maltese."
