Lyon have signed former Wallabies flanker Liam Gill to a one-year deal.

Gill -- who won a Super Rugby title with the Queensland Reds in 2011 -- played a season in France for Toulon last season as the French glamour club made it through to the Top 14 final.

Lyon have the option of signing Gill for another year following the 2017/18 season.

Gill -- who made 15 appearances for Australia between 2012 and 2013 -- will join fellow former Wallabies and Queensland Reds player Mike Harris at Lyon.
