Edinburgh confirmed the signing of Argentina tighthead-prop Felipe Arregui on a short-term deal.

The 22-year-old joins the Scottish club from the Jaguares, on a deal which will see him remain at Edinburgh until the end of January 2017.

Arregui said he was ecstatic about the move and how he was welcomed to the club.

"I'm very happy and excited to be joining Edinburgh and I come with the intention of giving my all for the team," he told the official Edinburgh website.

"Everyone has welcomed me to the club and I love the city. 

"I really like the way the squad and coaches work to improve each day, with a view to growing the team and the club. All the groups work well together to achieve the same goal."

Acting head Edinburgh coach, Duncan Hodge, added: "We’re delighted to welcome Felipe into the squad. At only 22-years old, he has an impressive CV for a prop and we’re excited to see what he can offer in an Edinburgh shirt.

"He’s shown a real enthusiasm and energy in training which we’re sure will transfer on to the park."
