Kallum Higginbotham has left Falkirk.

The frontman signed for Huddersfield three hours before last night’s transfer deadline then spoke exclusively to The Falkirk Herald.

Higginbotham has been in great form this season and has netted the Bairns a ‘six-figure-sum’ for the final four months of his contract.

He told The Falkirk Herald “I’d like to say thank you to all the fans, and the club - I loved my time in Scotland.”

Higginbotham joins former Bairn Scott Arfield and will be joined by Murray Wallace in the summer.

The Bairns’ defender signed for Huddersfield for £300,000 rising to three quarters of a million yesterday morning, but will return to Falkirk on-loan for the rest of the season.

Falkirk also threw out a bid for midfielder Mark Millar close to the Tuesday night deadline. Blackpool’s offer was ‘way below’ the club’s valuation of the player.

Reports last night also linked Bairns with a move for Gary Glen, Ryan Wallace and Willie Gibson, and though The Falkirk Herald understands moves were made to sign up Gibson as Higginbotham’s replacement, no switches have been confirmed at this stage.
