Edinburgh Rugby have further strengthened their squad ahead of next season with the signing of Italian international prop Pietro Ceccarelli.
The 11-times capped tighthead – who currently plays for French Top 14 side Oyonnax Rugby – has penned a one-year deal and will join the club in the summer.
On the signing, Edinburgh Head Coach Richard Cockerill said: “Pietro is a combatable tighthead who’s had experience playing in both the French Top 14 and on the international stage.”
“His arrival next season will only add to our strength and depth in the front-row.”
Ceccarelli started his career with Rome-based Lazio Rugby Club before securing a move to French side La Rochelle in 2012.
The 26-year-old made his Italian Test debut against Ireland in the 2016 Six Nations and featured against Scotland during the Azzuri’s 34-15 Summer Test defeat in Singapore last June.
