Exeter Chiefs lock Toby Salmon will join Newcastle Falcons in the summer on a two-year deal.
The 26-year-old Norfolk native made 16 appearances in his two seasons with the Chiefs after joining from Rotherham.
His stint with Exeter included a start in their victorious 2018 Anglo-Welsh Cup final, where he scored a try, Salmon stating: "I've benefited hugely from being in the Chiefs environment.
"I've always viewed Newcastle as being a great team and a great set-up, and when I've spoken to people who've experienced it up there that's exactly what they've said.
"The Falcons have a really good team culture which is evident whenever you watch them play, it's an exciting move for me and I'm looking forward to getting up there."
