In this week’s Maltese Football scout report, we take a look at young prospect Dunstan Vella.

The 22-year-old midfielder has featured 10 times for the Malta U21 side but recently received his first cap at full international level coming on as an 84th-minute sub against Georgia.

Malta lost the game 1-0 but it will be a moment Vella will remember for the rest of his life after replacing veteran Roderick Briffa.

Vella has made 19 appearances in the league for Hibernians this season but is yet to find the back of the net.

Last season, the 22-year-old scored a total of three league goals in 25 appearances.

Vella has won the Maltese Premier League twice and will be looking to make it a hat-trick of titles this season as Hibs currently top the Maltese Premier League table.
