Newcastle Falcons have announced the signing of French centre Maxime Mermoz for next season.

The 30-year-old will join Falcons in the summer following his short-term deal at Leicester Tigers.
Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards said: “Maxime’s signing is a major statement of intent for Newcastle Falcons. We have been working hard to make this move happen and we are delighted that a player of such proven calibre is keen to play a key role in the ambitious plans we have for the club.
“The fact that he will spend the back half of this season with Leicester Tigers is ideal in the sense that he will already be accustomed to Aviva Premiership rugby by the time he arrives with us and we are excited by what he will bring to the group.”
