Saracens have signed former Bath winger Joe Maddock for next season's Premiership campaign.

The 32-year-old New Zealander left the Rec in May 2010 and joined Magners League side Benetton Treviso.

"I am delighted to be returning to England, and to be joining the champions," he told the club websiteexternal-link.

"Anybody can see there is a real determination to build a happy, successful and special club, on and off the field."

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall added: "Joe was universally admired as the leading try-scorer in the Premiership in 2008/09, and he will bring proven talent, personality and a voice to our backline."

Christchurch-born Maddock was playing at Super 12 side Crusaders when he was signed by Bath in 2004 and went on to play 96 Premiership matches for the club, scoring 35 tries.
