Hurricanes centre Rey Lee-Lo will be turning out in the red and black of the Crusaders for the next two seasons.

The 27-year-old made his Super Rugby debut last season having been part of the Chiefs development squad in 2011. After an impressive 2013 campaign with the Hurricanes, the midfielder has now been lured to Christchurch on a two-year deal.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for me and one I could not pass up," Lee-Lo told the Crusaders' official website.

"I am really grateful for my time with the Hurricanes this year and the experience I gained alongside some first-class teammates and coaching staff. I now relish the opportunity to continue to develop my game in the Crusaders environment."

Crusaders head coach Todd Blackadder expressed his delight at adding to his midfield options.

"We looked carefully at his performance during this year's Super season, and he had some great statistics," commented Blackadder.

"He is a strong, physical back who will be a useful addition to our squad, bolstering our midfield stock."
