Saracens have announced the signing of Argentina international Juan Pablo Socino on a one-year deal.

Socino started his professional rugby career with Rotherham Titans in 2010 and also played for Nottingham US Dax, Newcastle Falcons, Edinburgh and most recently for the Spanish club El Salvador.

He has played over 100 games in the Championship tournament for Rotherham Titans and Nottingham combined and his experience will prove handy for the Allianz Park outfit next season where they will feature in the second tier.

“I was in Spain so for an opportunity to come like this it was huge,” he told the official website of the club.

“I’ve played against Sarries a lot and I know what they mean in English rugby; I know what they’ve achieved, I know what they’ve done.

"I know the type of players they have as well and I know the Argentinians they’ve had here, like Chipi and Chelo, and I’ve heard really good things.

“To be joining such as a successful club is huge for me and my family.”

Socino has played four Tests for Argentina that came in 2015 that includes two appearances in the World Cup in the same year.

“Juan Pablo is a hugely experienced player and will have a significant role to play in the exciting challenge ahead," said Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall.

“We have been impressed with his desire and motivation to make the most of this opportunity and have no doubt he will have a positive influence on some of our younger players.”
