Sale Sharks have continued the strengthening of their backline with the signing of centre Johnny Leota.
The Samoa international, 27, has been included in the 25-man training squad for the World Cup, and if selected will join Sale after the tournament.
Director of sport Steve Diamond said: "Johnny is a great signing for us and I'm sure he will fit in well.
"He is playing well and I've had my eye on him. He is a great defender and great line breaker with ball in hand."
