Longridge has been in infrequent action for Hamilton this season, scoring most recently against Hibernian earlier this term.

Hartley said: “I am pleased to bring Louis into the club. He is a player with good pedigree having played a number of games in the Premiership.

”He is quick and will hopefully add a different dimension to our strike-force.”

Longridge trained with the Bairns this morning and goes into the selection pool for Saturday’s match against Dunfermline.

The 26-year old began his career at Glasgow club Harmony Row, before spells with Bo’Ness United, Hamilton and Raith Rovers.
