Wales international Ryan Jones will join Bristol after agreeing a two-year deal with the Championship leaders.

Jones, capped 75 times by Wales and a record 33 as captain, joins Bristol from Ospreys at the end of the Welsh region's current PRO12 campaign.

Jones said: "I'm delighted to be joining Bristol Rugby. I'll be looking to use my experience to help the team and contribute to the success of the club. The vision of Bristol, the passionate fanbase, and the direction that the club is going is a huge attraction for me.

"I want to test myself at the highest level in the English game, and I'm determined to achieve that as a Bristol Rugby player."

Bristol top the Championship by three points and Jones becomes the third Welsh player to sign for the club ahead of next season. Jones' will be joined by Ospreys team-mate Matthew Morgan and Sale scrum-half Dwayne Peel.

Bristol director of rugby Andy Robinson said: "Ryan's arrival indicates the ambition that Bristol Rugby has and the quality of players we are capable of attracting.

"To captain your country a record number of times and to play for the British & Irish Lions is no mean feat - what Ryan has achieved in his career so far is remarkable.

"His influence - on and off the field - will be significant for us, both during the play-offs this season and next. Ryan is hungry to help Bristol move forward and drive our progress."
