The Melbourne Rebels have signed utility back Mike Harris on a two-year deal according to reports in the Australian press.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the move will be confirmed on Saturday.

The Rebels have long been looking to add some experience and firepower to the their backs division and Harris, who has ten Wallaby caps and can play at full-back, fly-half or either midfield slot, fits the bill nicely.

The 25-year-old is likely to be joined by more high-profile players though with Wales playmaker James Hook linked to move to Super Rugby after his French club Perpignan were relegated from the Top 14.
