Ospreys fly-half Josh Thomas has signed for Newcastle Falcons, joining the Gallagher Premiership club this summer on a two-year deal.
The 21-year-old is a former Wales Under-20s international who has made 23 senior appearances for Ospreys, one of which saw him scoring the winning try away to Leinster.
Able to play at full-back as well as fly-half, Thomas said: “Moving to Newcastle is an exciting opportunity which I couldn’t really turn down.
“I’ve wanted to play in the Premiership – it’s a new competition for me and a challenge that I’m looking forward to.
“There are loads of positive aspects to playing in the Premiership, and I want to go up to Newcastle, really compete and test myself.”
Thomas becomes the Falcons’ third new signing for next season, joining Bath fly-half Tian Schoeman and Doncaster lock Josh Peters.
