Premiership high-flyers Bath have signed England Sevens player Jeff Williams for next season.

The 26-year-old, who plays at centre or on the wing in 15-a-side rugby, was part of the England side to win the Tokyo Sevens event earlier this month.

"Coming from the world of sevens, Jeff offers dynamism and a high-tempo style of play," Bath head coach Mike Ford told the club's website.

"The way he plays will really suit the attacking ethos we have here at Bath."

Williams has scored 36 tries in 20 tournament appearances on the Sevens World Series circuit and was an "important member" of England's squad, according to their head coach Simon Amor.

"I am looking forward to seeing him bring his dynamism to Bath Rugby and would like to thank him for contribution to England Sevens," added Amor.
