Falkirk have been granted international clearance to sign and play 27-year-old Australian striker Daniel McBreen.
Daniel McBreen played for Newcastle United in Australia
The First Division club's player-manager, John Hughes, had been concerned at the length of time taken for the red tape to clear.
But McBreen, who left Romanian outfit Universitatea Craiova in the summer, could now face Raith Rovers.
McBreen has also played for Newcastle United in his homeland and English Conference side St Albans City.
