Wasps have signed New Zealand international prop Jeff Toomaga-Allen.

The Gallagher Premiership club said that Toomaga-Allen will join them from Super Rugby side the Hurricanes this summer.

He follows his fellow All Black - centre Malakai Fekitoa - to the Ricoh Arena after Wasps confirmed his signing from Toulon on Wednesday.

Toomaga-Allen was capped against Japan in 2013, and he was also a member of New Zealand's Rugby Championship squad four years later.

Wasps rugby director Dai Young said: "To bring someone of Jeff's calibre to the club is fantastic news.

"Jeff is a solid scrummager, while also being strong in defence. And like most New Zealanders, he is gifted with ball in hand, so he's a terrific all-round player.

"We are looking forward to him joining us next season, as he will provide a real wealth of experience to the front-row."
