Wasps have confirmed that forward Myles Edwards will join the Premiership club ahead of the 2020/21 season.

A product of Worcester Warriors development programme, Edwards joined La Rochelle in 2015 and moved to Aurillac in 2018 before joining Oyonnax ahead of the 2019/20 season.

The 23-year-old lock becomes the second signing by Wasps for the 2020/21 season after the club secured the services of Ryan Mills.

“The chance to play for such a prestigious club as Wasps is one I couldn’t turn down.” said Edwards in a statement released by Wasps.

Wasps head coach Lee Blackett reckons Edwards has the talent to perform at the top level.

“Myles is a hungry young athlete, with a huge amount of potential," said Blackett.

Wasps are fifth in the Premiership table with six wins from 13 games and are two points behind fourth placed Northampton Saints.
