Falkirk have agreed to let striker John Stewart join St Johnstone on a six-month loan deal.
John Stewart is heading to McDiarmid Park
Stewart failed to score for the Bairns last season, following his summer move from Aberdeen.
"I'm hoping John can take advantage of this and prove to us he can do a job," Falkirk manager John Hughes told the club website.
"Nothing would please me more than to take him back in January, an improved and better player."
Falkirk paid a an undisclosed, five-figure transfer fee for Stewart but the 22-year-old failed to shine.
And the player did not travel on the pre-season tour to Holland, with Hughes punishing him for a breach of discipline.
