London Wasps have signed Scotland international fly half Ruaridh Jackson from Glasgow Warriors for next season.

26-year-old Jackson, who has 23 caps to his name, becomes the fifth high-profile signing for London Wasps ahead of the 2014/15 season, with the signings of Bradley Davies, Rob Miller, James Gaskell and Lorenzo Cittadini already announced.

Jackson, who made his international debut as a 22-year-old against New Zealand in 2010, will join Wasps after six years at Glasgow Warriors, during which time he has played 108 times, scoring 443 points.

The standoff is well-known for his attacking threat and ability to play on the gainline. He will join a group of fly-halves in black and gold next season that includes Andy Goode and Joe Carlisle.

"I have been very impressed with what I have seen of Ruaridh and I am looking forward to welcoming him to the club," said Wasps director of rugby Dai Young.

"He will add to the quality pool of 10s we already have and the competition for that position next season will be very strong."

"I am very excited about joining Wasps. I have been at Glasgow a long time now but I am now relishing this new challenge that lies ahead," said Jackson.

"After meeting with Dai I was very impressed with what the club has to offer and it is easy to see the club is going in the right direction. I can't wait to start the next stage of my rugby career and to be involved with this great club."
