Transfer News: Ospreys sign Moldova international

The Ospreys have added to their front row options for next season, signing Moldovan international tight head Gheorghe Gajion.

The 25-year old tight-head, who has 13 caps, impressed on trial and joins from French Federale 1 side Trelissac, while he has also played for Rovigo in Italy.

Ospreys rugby general manager Dan Griffiths said: “Gheorghe… is someone who the coaches believe has the raw ingredients to make a real impact.”

Gajion is the second tight-head signing for next season, with Tom Botha joining from Pro14 rivals Cheetahs.

peaking about his move to the Ospreys, Gajion said: “It’s a huge honour for me to sign for the Ospreys, who are a very big club both in European and world rugby. I’ve worked hard to get to this point in my career and I hope I can make my country, my family and the Ospreys supporters proud. With my fellow countryman and friend Dmitri leaving I know I have big shoes to fill but I will give it 100 per cent.”
