A week after rumours first circulated that Mike Phillips was joining Racing Metro, his signing on a two-and-a-half year deal was confirmed by the club this afternoon.

Phillips was sacked by French club, Bayonne in October after allegedly turning up for a video analysis session under the influence of alcohol.

Racing denied reports last week they had offered him a short-term deal until the end of the season. He joins Jamie Roberts and Dan Lydiate at the club.

The club issued a statement which said: "For several months, Racing has been negotiating with Phillips and his agents with the aim of recruiting him for the 2014-15 season. The recent events in Bayonne have only precipitated his signature."

"I'm going somewhere tomorrow. I don't want to say anything yet, but I'm away somewhere tomorrow and I'm happy enough," he said at the weekend. "I'm hoping to play next Saturday. I will look to surround myself with the best. I am just looking forward and as it stands I am pretty happy."
