It appears the RaboDirect PRO12 will continue to include two Italian teams following positive talks in London.
A statement released by the RaboDirect PRO12 revealed the positive move, which comes after Treviso recently said they were quitting in June.
The PRO12 revealed: "A constructive meeting took place on Tuesday in London between FIR and the Celtic Rugby Unions (SRU, IRFU, WRU)."
"The meeting was successful and an agreement was reached for FIR to join Celtic Rugby as an equal partner from July 1st, 2014. The terms of participation of two Italian teams were agreed upon.
"Under the new agreement, FIR will ensure the participation of two Italian teams for the next four years in the competition which is currently known as the RaboDirect PRO12.
"The agreement between FIR, SRU, WRU and IRFU will be officially signed in due course."
