Northampton Saints have confirmed the signing of former Wasps scrum-half Charlie Davies ahead of the 2018/19 season of Gallagher Premiership.

Davies made his professional rugby debut with Nottingham in 2007 and switched to Stade Francais in 2009. From there on, he had brief stints with Wasps and Nottingham before he joined Dragons in 2015.

He represented Wales in 84 games and now is set to return to the English Premiership for the second time.

"The decision to join a club like Northampton Saints was a no-brainer," he told the club's website.

"I remember from my time playing in the Premiership that Franklin's Gardens is a formidable place to play, and I'm looking forward to having that support behind me next year.

"I'm excited about joining up with the squad when pre-season starts later this month, and giving a good account of myself so I can push for a regular start."

Northampton Saints finished ninth in the Premiership table last season with just eight wins from 22 games.
