Former England international Olly Barkley has joined the Scarlets on a deal until the end of the season.

Barkley had his Grenoble contract terminated last month by mutual consent and he has opted to sign for the Welsh region. Scarlets boss Simon Easterby hailed the capture, saying: "Olly will bring a lot of experience to our squad both from his distinguished test and club career in England.

"He can cover 12 and 10 and will add much needed cover for us as we have so many players unavailable during the international call ups as well as some long term injuries we have in midfield."

Barkley added: "The Scarlets squad has some fantastic players and I hope I can add something in the coming months and I look forward to working with Simon and his coaching team and joining the players to try and be part of an ambitious team keen make an impact for the rest of the season."
