Meanwhile, Thomas is looking forward to his debut in the Premiership with the Welford Road unit.
“I’m really excited about the opportunity to join Leicester Tigers. They are a massive club in the Gallagher Premiership with a big history of success.
“I can’t wait to get started. It will be great to be able to learn off some great coaches and compete and play alongside great players.”
Newcastle-born fly-half Johnny McPhillips has also been signed by Leicester Tigers from Ulster Rugby while they have already announced the signings of ordan Taufua, Tomas Lavanini, Calum Green, Noel Reid, Jaco Taute, Nephi Leitigaga and Charlie Clare for the new season.
