Ireland international Simon Zebo will make a return back to Munster ahead of the 2021/22 season after signing a one-year contract with the club.

Zebo previously played for Munster between 2010 and 2018 and went on to make 144 appearances for them scoring 60 tries. He made a switch to French club Racing 92 ahead of the 2018/19 season featuring for them in 55 games but will now return back to Thomond Park next season.

The 31-year-old also played 35 Tests for Ireland with his last appearance for the national side coming in June 2017.

“I am thrilled and honoured to be coming back home to play for Munster," he told the club's official website.

"My family and I have been so lucky to have enjoyed three incredible years with Racing 92 in Paris and I cannot thank the team there enough, I really have made friends for life and take with me some brilliant memories.

“However, as everyone knows, Munster holds a very special place in my heart and I’ve always said that I wanted to play for them and potentially Ireland again, so when this opportunity arose the lure of being close to home, family and friends and Munster fans, it outweighed all other options.

"I cannot wait to get back to the HPC with the team and hopefully a packed Thomond Park.”
