Sale Sharks have announced the signing of Italy international full-back Luke McLean, who will join the club from Treviso at the end of 2013/14.
26-year-old Queensland-born McLean, who has been capped 56 times by his adopted country, is an ideal replacement for the outgoing Rob Miller.
"Luke is an exceptional international full-back. He is a genuine fifteen and great under the high ball," revealed Sale director of rugby Steve Diamond.
"Luke will bring a lot of experience with him and will compliment and help push our standards. With qualifying for the new European Competition we have now brought in four internationals to replace the lads who are leaving. Luke is also a very competent goal kicker."
