Telusa Veainu has signed with French club Stade Francais, committing to the next three seasons in Paris.

The Tonga international outside-back joined Leicester Tigers after the 2015 Rugby World Cup and made just shy of 90 appearances in the green, red and white over almost five seasons. 

Capable of playing on the wing or at full-back, Veainu scored 32 tries for Tigers and, following the 2017/18 season, was voted the RPA Player of the Year. 

Leicester Tigers Director of Rugby Geordan Murphy said: "We thank Telusa for all that he has given to Leicester Tigers during his time with us.

"The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has not been lost on anyone and, while we hoped to see Telusa play out the remaining one-and-a-half seasons of his contract with us at Tigers, we appreciate the varying individual circumstances of all our players and wish him, his partner and child well in their next chapter in Paris."
