Sale Sharks have brought in Scotland scrum-half Chris Cusiter on a two-year deal.
With Dwayne Peel moving to Bristol at the end of the season, Sale boss Steve Diamond has opted for a like-for-like replacement with Cusiter boasting a wealth of experience at scrum-half.
Cusiter, who has 66 caps for Scotland, will arrive at the club next season and Sale boss Steve Diamond is delighted with the capture.
"Chris is a great signing for the club," Diamond said. "We have signed him to replace Dwayne Peel who is leaving us after six years at the club and we know that Chris will be the quality replacement we need.
"A lot of credit for the signing must go to Bryan Redpath who knows Chris well. Chris will join us in the close season and we look forward to him arriving."
Cusiter is excited about the prospect of completing the set of playing in Europe's top three league competitions having also run out for Perpignan in the Top 14.
"It was a big deal for me coming coming back to Scotland and I've had a fantastic time at Glasgow," he said. "Not many players get the opportunity to play in the Top 14, RaboDirect PRO12 and Aviva Premiership, so I'm excited about that."
