London Broncos have agreed a deal to sign Fiji international centre Wes Naiqama from Penrith Panthers on a two-year deal from the 2015 season.

The 31-year-old has played over 120 games in the NRL, enjoying spells with St George Illawarra Dragons, Newcastle Knights and Penrith.

Naiqama has won 13 international caps and his move to the Broncos is subject to a successful application for a visa.

"It was always a goal of mine to play in the UK at some stage," he said.

The Broncos have already been relegated to the Championship but Naiqama is the 19th player to commit to the club for next season.

"I've spoken to some high profile people in the world of rugby league, including players from Penrith, and they all have a huge amount of respect for Wes," Broncos head coach Joey Grima said.

"I'm really pleased that the environment and the culture that we're creating at the club is attracting good players from Super League, the Championship and the NRL.

"I'm proud that people are buying into what we're doing."
