Prop Derrick Appiah has joined Edinburgh on a short-term loan deal from Worcester Warriors.
The 22-year-old has made five appearances for Warriors, with four of those coming this season, including his maiden try in Russia against Enisei-STM in the European Challenge Cup.
Appiah was a regular for Italy Under-20s in the 2014 Six Nations and featured in their World Rugby Under-20 Championship campaign before moving to Sixways in the summer of 2015.
The prop has had loan spells at Cinderford and Nottingham Rugby and also featured for London Scottish in the RFU Championship last weekend.
Appiah is available to play for Edinburgh Rugby with immediate effect.
