Goalkeeper Robert Olejnik is returning to Falkirk FC.

The Austrian will link up with his former club on Monday for the start of pre-season training.

No deal is on the table at the moment and no talks ohave taken place yet but the club is hopeful.

Steven Pressley is also running the rule over former St Mirren forward Gareth Wardlaw and ex-Hearts man David Wittenveen.

Alastair McKinnon, a defender who has represented Scotland’s University team, has also been invited to Stirling.

Pressley told Heraldsport: “The door is open from the club’s perspective, but at this time it is only training Bobby is coming in for. I have also invited a few other guys in to train with us and to have a closer look at others.”

Meanwhile top scorer Mark Stewart is mulling over a deal with Bradford City.

The striker looked around Valley Parade on Tuesday, but Elvis added he doesn’t want to lose the striker who could still join Olejnik in Stirling on Monday. “We will be due compensation for Mark though I don’t want to lose him. He was our top scorer last term - without taking any penalties.

“Unless the deal is right for the club he’ll be back and he understands the position.”

Former Bairn Chris Mitchell agreed a two-year Bantams deal on Wednesday.
