Falkirk are running the rule over Rwandan international striker Jessy Reindorf.

The towering forward arrived in Scotland on Sunday and has spent the early part of the week training at The Falkirk Stadium.

At 6’5” he adds a different dimension to Gary Holt’s striking options - currently Rory loy, Phillip Roberts, Scott Shepherd and Lewis Small.

“He’s a different ingredient for the pot,” said the Falkirk manager, “we’re taking a look at him because he’s different to what we already have.”

He added: “But don’t get me wrong, I’m happy with what we have currently - we’re very good in that department but there may be instances where we could do with something different and Jessy is different to what we already have, so we’re having a look.”

Reindorf has two caps for Rwanda and spent the last six months at Bury where he scored a wonder-goal against Norwich, and came to the ex-Canaries youth chief’s attention. See it here (Youtube link).
