Falkirk have signed Conor McGrandles on loan until the end of the season.

The Norwich City midfielder – believed to be Falkirk’s record transfer sale 18 months ago – was back home training with the team today after penning a deal.

McGrandles goes straight into the first-team pool for Sunday’s clash with Hibernian at The Falkirk Stadium.

He is the first of Peter Houston’s mid-season reinforcements with more set to follow.

A deal has been offered to 23-year-old Turkish goalkeeper Deniz Mehmet who has been training with the Bairns for a month.

The former West Ham Academy graduate was being courted by QPR this time last year and has been capped at youth level by Turkey.

Cowdenbeath right-back Dean Brett is another name being linked with the Bairns.

Danny Rogers was still a Falkirk player at time of going to press, however that could change later this month, depending opn Aberdeen’s situation between the sticks as the Dons lost Danny Ward to Liverpool on Monday.

Agreement would need to be reached between the keeper, his parent club and Peter Houston but the Falkirk boss has admitted he wouldn’t stand in his way if the call from Pittodrie came.

Houston and Rogers were named manager and player of the month on Monday.
