Gary Holt will run the rule over a potential new recruit next week.

The Bairns boss has seen Stephen Kingsley, Will Vaulks and Jay Fulton head out on trial over the past month and with the January transfer window open, and clubs actively scouting the trio, Holt is looking for additions to boost his squad.

Whoever comes in will have to impress the Bairns boss, and re-iterated what he looks for in a player when describing the qualities possessed by Will Vaulks.

“I want players who are hungry - those who want to play at 3 p.m. on a Saturday and are not just content to train Monday to Friday.

“Will is exactly that. He came here hungry to play and work hard and he’s getting his reward. I put Luke Leahy in the same equation - he’s a boy who wants to play football.

“I don’t want journeymen or people happy just to take a wage - I want poeple who want to play.”

Names suggested with the Bairns locally, such as Farid El Alagui, Derek Riordan and Rudi Skacel have failed to produce a new signing and numerous suggestions of young players spread throughout England from Holt’s previous time as youth coach at Norwich have been made too, but the manager will run the rule over a potential new man next week.

However he added: “The budget is what it is. We used it and then managed to get Mark Millar in on loan.

“The position at the club is we’d look at any good offer that came in for good players, that’s the reality. even though I’d rather we rejected every one and kept all our players if I had my way.”
