Sale Sharks have announced the signing of international loosehead prop Valery Morozov from Enisei-STM.
The Russian front row has won 15 caps for his country and has been closely watching by the recruitment department at Sale over the past 12 months, director of rugby Steve Diamond confirmed.
“He’s a big, dynamic, scrummaging prop and front row players with his skill set are few and far between,” Diamond told the club’s official website.
“Andrei Ostrikov and Vadim Cobilas first made me aware of Valery’s abilities, and we kept a watch on him for the past twelve months whilst he was playing for Enisei.
“We look forward to welcoming him to Carrington on 2nd January to bolster our options in the front row as we move into 2019.”
