Wasps have announced the signing of 27-year-old England international prop Kieran Brookes from Northampton Saints.
Brookes has played 73 times for Saints since joining them from Newcastle three years ago.
“Kieran is a proven operator at Premiership and international level over a number of years," said Director of rugby Dai Young.
“He is a good addition to our squad, and adds to a pool of props which mixes experience with some fast-developing younger players.
“As we all know, having a solid set-piece is a crucial component in a successful team. Kieran’s arrival will further boost us in this area, and he also offers plenty around the park both with ball in hand and defensively.”
Brookes appeared 81 times during two spells with the Falcons between 2009 and 2015, and also spent a two-year period at Leicester Tigers.
He has won 16 England caps since making his debut against New Zealand on the 2014 summer tour.
