Sale have signed Russia international second-row forward Andrei Ostrikov from French second tier side Aurillac.

The 23-year-old becomes the second Russian to join a Premiership team following Vasili Artemiev's switch to Northampton in March.

Sharks executive director of sport Steve Diamond told the club website: "His desire is to spend some time in England, and he's a hungry lad.

"Andrei is a big, athletic lad who has been coached well in France."
