Northampton Saints have announced the signing of France and Toulouse star Louis Picamoles for next season.

Number 8 Picamoles was part of the French World Cup squad which reached the quarterfinals of the Rugby World Cup last month.

He scored in their 13-62 loss against New Zealand in the knockout stages of the tournament.

“It is going to be an honour to become part of a club as prestigious as the Saints. I’m really looking forward to learn more about the club, my future team mates, to play in the Aviva Premiership and to immerse myself in the English culture, especially my first big derby against Leicester!"
