Falkirk have signed Airdrie United forward Alan Gow on a pre-contract agreement and re-signed midfielders John O'Neil and Craig MacPherson.
Alan Gow was wanted by rival clubs
Bairns boss John Hughes described Gow as "without doubt one of the hottest properties in the game at the moment".
"Anyone who's been close to first division football over the last couple of seasons cannot have failed to notice the talent Alan possesses," he said.
Falkirk will negotiate compensation with Airdrie as Gow is under 24.
The 22-year-old joined Airdrie from Clydebank in 2002 and has scored 26 goals in 98 games for Sandy Stewart's side.
"I'm absolutely thrilled with this signing," said Hughes.
"He was a driving force behind the promotion of Airdrie United into the first division and also played a major part in their campaign this year.
"I'm delighted he has pledged his immediate future to Falkirk, particularly since he was not short of offers from elsewhere."
Indeed, Falkirk claim they beat off bids from Scottish Premier League clubs as well as other from the First Division to sign Gow on a two-year contract.
Meanwhile, veterans O'Neil and MacPherson have signed one-year extensions to their contracts.
"Both players have massive experience, with John having played SPL football before," said Hughes.
