Falkirk have signed midfielder Stephen Bradley from Eircom Premier League champions Drogheda United.
Bradley spent three months with Dunfermline in the SPL
The 23-year-old former Arsenal player, who has played for Republic of Ireland Under-21s, passed a medical on Monday.
He will complete his move once he receives international clearance from the Irish Football Association.
Falkirk head coach John Hughes told his club website: "Stephen spent some time with us a few weeks back and he is certainly a very talented footballer."
Bradley started out with Lourdes Celtic before heading for Arsenal.
He had a fantastic football education under Liam Brady and Arsene Wenger at Arsenal

He failed to make the breakthrough into the first-team with the English giants and only made two appearances during three months with his next club, Dunfermline Athletic.
But, while with Drogheda, Bradley had offers of trials with Fulham and Reading without winning a move back to England's top flight.
He struggled to hold down a regular first-team place as Drogheda took the title this season.
But Hughes enthused: "He had a fantastic football education under Liam Brady and Arsene Wenger at Arsenal and I am sure he will show those qualities at Falkirk."
Bradley will be ineligible to play for Falkirk until the opening of the January transfer window.
