Saracens have confirmed the signing of Samoa international Theo McFarland ahead of their return to the Premiership in the 2021/22 season.
The 25-year-old will head to Saracens after a spell with the Dallas Jackals in America. The 6ft 6in lock has also represented Samoa two times at the internationa.
According to the statement released by the club, McFarland has signed an undisclosed 'long-term' deal.
“When I heard I was gonna join the Saracens I was buzzing," he said to the club's official website.
"It’s a huge honour to be looked at by one of the top rugby clubs in the world.
"Not everyone gets a chance to play for a club like Saracens. I can’t wait to join the pack and be part of the Sarries family.”
Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall welcomed McFarland to the club.
“We are excited to watch Theo develop here at Saracens.
"He is clearly a very talented athlete and we will look to unlock his potential during what we hope will be a very successful period for him.”
Having faced an automatic relegation at the end of the 2019/20 season for a series of salary cap breaches, Saracens will return back to the Premiership in the 2021/22 season after they went on to win the Championship last season.
