Stuart Olding has signed a two-year deal with Brive to end his search for a club following the termination of his Ulster and Ireland contracts.
The 25-year-old centre will link up with former Ireland lock Jeremy Davidson, who is the new head coach of the relegated Top 14 outfit.
Olding was acquitted of rape in March along with provincial and international team-mate Paddy Jackson.

However, their contracts were ripped up after other aspects of their behaviour that came to light during the trial were heavily criticised.
Both players were being lined up for a move to Sale earlier this month but the Sharks withdrew their interest. Jackson has yet to find a new club.
Brive announced the signing on their Twitter account. Olding has featured in four Tests for Ireland between 2013 and 2016 and has scored a solitary try while he was associated with Ulster since 2011 when he made his professional rugby debut.
