Leicester Tigers have announced the signing of wing Tom Brady, who will arrive at Welford Road from Sale Sharks ahead of next season.

The 25-year-old has made more than 100 appearances in six seasons with the Sharks since making a try-scoring debut against Newcastle Falcons in September 2010.

Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill said: "Tom has a lot of ability in the wide channels and has a decent try-scoring record. We think he can kick on again at Leicester and look forward to welcoming him during the summer."

Tigers have also confirmed the addition of Australia international Matt Toomua and South African World Cup winner JP Pietersen to the backline ahead of the 2016/17 season, while Jono Kitto, George Catchpole and Jack Roberts have today agreed new contracts.

Brady said: "As a local lad, playing for Sale Sharks has been a dream come true, I have loved my time at the club. However, the opportunity to play for one of the biggest clubs in Europe doesn't come along every day and I'm massively excited at the prospect of joining Leicester Tigers next season. The quality of squad they are assembling and the drive for trophies is something I'm looking forward to being part of."
