London Irish have signed Perpignan forward Luke Narraway on a two-year deal.
Narraway has been in the Top 14 for the past two seasons after making 163 appearances for Gloucester. But he will return to the Aviva Premiership next season and he is delighted to have signed for the Exiles.
"There has been a lot of positive news to come out of London Irish over the last six months, not least with the announcement of the new board of directors and the move to a new state of the art training ground," Narraway said. "I'm excited with the direction the club are heading and I'm looking forward to being a part of their plans."
London Irish boss Brian Smith added: "Luke is a talented player with a huge amount of Premiership experience. As a club, we want to be challenging for silverware and we need the right type of player to achieve those goals.
"I had the pleasure of working with Luke in the England set up and look forward to doing so again next season. He has bought into what we want to accomplish and therefore is a perfect fit for London Irish."
