Championship side Nottingham Rugby have signed Exeter Chiefs prop Kieran Davies for the 2015/16 season.
The 21-year-old only made two appearances for the Premiership club, both in the LV= Cup, but he has also spent time on loan at Cornish Pirates.
Nottingham head coach Martin Haag said: "He's young, has a good work ethic and a lot of potential.
"He comes with Championship experience and, coming from Exeter, we know he'll maintain and improve our forward pack."
Nottingham agreed contract extensions with five players on Tuesday.
