Bairns to bring in Healy

Midfielder set for loan move

Healy: Falkirk target understands Falkirk are poised to sign Ipswich Town midfielder Colin Healy.

Falkirk are believed to have beaten off interest from a host of clubs to land the former Celtic star.

Healy joined Ipswich last summer from Cork City, but he has been unable to hold down a regular place in Roy Keane's side.

Ipswich are prepared to loan out the Republic of Ireland international and Falkirk have won the race ahead of some English and other SPL sides for the 29-year-old's signature.

Healy, who has previous spells in Scotland with Celtic and Livingston, is expected to join the Bairns on loan until the end of the season as they look to climb clear of trouble at the wrong end of the table.
