  |   Rugby

Northampton Saints have confirmed the signing of England international James Haskell for next season on a one-year deal.

The 77-times England-capped forward is the seventh close-season signing to arrive at Franklin's Gardens ahead of the 2018/19 season.

The 33-year-old made over 200 appearances during a 12-year career with Wasps and has also played for Stade Francais, Ricoh Black Rams and the Highlanders.

"I'm really excited and humbled to be joining a giant of English rugby in Northampton Saints," said Haskell.

"Having had the opportunity to play against them for many years now, I know this is a club with a proud history and a set of passionate and loyal supporters who always make their presence felt."

Haskell was also a member of the British and Irish Lions squad that toured New Zealand last year and played against a Hurricanes side led by Saints' new director of rugby Chris Boyd.
