Meanwhile, second-rower Calum Green has agreed a move to Leicester Tigers from Newcastle Falcons this summer.
The 28-year-old Green has been among Premiership Rugby’s leading locks in recent seasons, particularly in his work at the set-piece.
Tigers head coach Geordan Murphy, welcoming Green’s signing, said: “Calum has played a lot of senior rugby with Carnegie and then the Falcons and has firmly established himself as a Premiership player.
“His stats have been particularly good at the lineout in the last couple of seasons and he is a real hard-worker in the forward pack.
“We think he will add a lot to the group here when he returns and we look forward to welcoming him back to Tigers this summer.”
