“He has impressed in the Championship week in week out and we believe, as we’ve seen with some other players like Ross Neal, Billy Searle, Ben Morris and Michael Le Bourgeois this season, we can aid his development to try and become a Premiership player.”
Vukasinovic said: “Making the move to the Premiership with such a well-renowned club as Wasps is a huge step for me in my rugby career.
“I can’t wait to test myself alongside and against some of the best players around.”
