Falkirk manager Paul Hartley told his club’s website: “I am pleased to be able to bring Louis into the club.

“He is a player with a good pedigree having played a number of games in the Premiership.

“He is quick and will hopefully add a different dimension to our strikeforce.

“We need to score more goals to help us climb the table and I believe Louis to be capable of helping us do just that.”
