Sale Sharks have bolstered their back-line stocks after signing fly-half Dan Mugford from Championship outfit Nottingham.
24-year-old Mugford has been one of the top performing players in the Championship with both Nottingham and his previous club Plymouth. He also spent two years with the Exeter Academy.
Sale's director of Rugby Steve Diamond said: "Dan has been on our radar for a while and when he became available we made our move to sign him. Dan is still a very young man with lots of potential and I am sure he will make his mark in the Premiership next season."
Mugford is delighted with his move to a Premiership club.
"Really excited about joining Sale Sharks," he said.
"I have been up to Manchester and had a look around the club and met the staff. It’s a fantastic environment and a big step up to join an established Premiership club like Sharks.
"I look forward to giving it my best shot and am very grateful to Nottingham for helping me progress my game which has given me this opportunity of playing in the Premiership."
