Northampton Saints have built on their strength at scrum-half with the signing of Henry Taylor from Saracens.
The 25-year-old will join the ranks alongside Cobus Reinach and Alex Mitchell next season.
“I’m really excited about the opportunity to join a club like Northampton Saints,” Taylor said.
“It’s clear that the side has made brilliant progress this season and they are playing a brand of rugby I have always loved.
“I’m sure that working with the likes of Chris Boyd and Sam Vesty will help me improve as a player.
“Saints’ set-up, with their training facilities and proudly cared for grass pitch, is an environment in which I look forward to training in day in, day out.
“I know first-hand that Franklin’s Gardens is a formidable place to play – I’m looking forward to having that support behind me next year and giving a good account of myself so I can push to reach my full potential.”
Taylor earned a move to Saracens academy after starring for Loughborough University in National One, representing England U20s and winning the World Championship in 2015.
Saints director of rugby Chris Boyd said: “We’re thrilled to boost our options at scrum-half next season with a nippy young player like Henry, in whom we see plenty of potential.
“He has all the qualities to stake a claim for regular first-team rugby so I’m looking forward to seeing how far he can go within our set-up here in Northampton.”
