Austrian striker Roman Wallner has linked up with Falkirk and is set to be joined by Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul.
Wallner arrives at the SPL club from Austria Vienna and has agreed a one-year contract with Falkirk.
Subject to receiving international clearance, the international forward will be able to play in Saturday's season opener against Gretna.
Falkirk boss John Hughes told the club's official website: "I am absolutely delighted securing a player of Roman's class, ability and stature."
Young goalkeeper Krul is also due to join Falkirk on a six-month loan arrangement from Newcastle.
Hughes has been keen to bring in reinforcements in the goalkeeping department and is excited by Krul's arrival.
"We are delighted to bring a goalkeeper of Tim's quality to the club," added Hughes.
"He is one I have watched and been impressed by on a number of occasions and I think that it shows how far the club has come when we are able to attract the Dutch Under 21 goalkeeper to the club when there was genuine English Championship interest in the player."
