Wasps have confirmed the the signing of Italy international centre Michele Campagnaro, who was recently released from his contract with rivals the Exeter Chiefs.
The centre, who will link up with his new teammates after the Autumn Internationals, has signed a deal until the end of the season. The 25-year-old has 36 international caps to his name and played in every game for Italy at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
He has also scored nine international tries, including two in the last fortnight which have come against Ireland and Georgia.
Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young said:
“Michele is an experienced international who predominantly plays at 13, but having also played on the wing and at 15, his versatility will be of huge benefit to the team throughout the season.
“He joins us with some real pedigree and we’re looking forward to integrating him into the squad.”
“The opportunity to join Wasps was something no player can turn down.
“Wasps play an exciting brand of rugby and have a number of talented individuals. I’m very much looking forward to testing myself and playing at the Ricoh Arena.”
