The news comes only a week after Juan Alegria also returned to the Gers from John McGlynn’s side to make a permanent move away from Glasgow.

USL Championship outfit Tampa Bay Rowdies are said to be keen on the 20-year-old winger alongside a host of US-based clubs.

However, no formal offer has been tabled as of yet and Kennedy will still be available for the Bairns on Saturday afternoon.

Falkirk travel to Alloa Athletic hoping to progress out of the fourth round of the Scottish Cup for the first time since 2020, when they reached the fifth round – eventually losing out to Hearts 1-0 at home.

Kennedy has made 17 appearances for the Bairns since joining on loan, scoring two goals and grabbing seven assists along the way, including four set-ups in one match against Wick Academy.

In recent weeks the ex-Dunfermline, Raith Rovers and Hamilton Accies ace has been one of Falkirk’s star performers, with boss McGlynn telling the Falkirk Herald that “he is on the top of his game right now.”
