Nottingham have signed former Leicester Tigers centre Ayoola Erinle until the end of the season, reports BBC Sport.

The twice-capped England international, 31, joined the Green & Whites in the summer on a pay-as-you play basis after leaving French side Biarritz.

Erinle said: "When the situation arose to be part of it all, I jumped at the chance and haven't looked back.

"There is so much youth and enjoyment in the team and I'm already clicking with the boys really well."

He added: "I love everything about the club. The team, the coaching staff and the fans all add to the amazing atmosphere at Nottingham."

Given that Erinle also played more than 100 games for Wasps, director of rugby Glenn Delaney was thrilled to sign the back on a longer-term deal.

"Erinle has got a great deal of experience," said Delaney. "With him and James Arlidge on the pitch, we will be ensuring control and good decision-making as the season continues."
