Saracens and England winger Nathan Earle is set to move to Harlequins at the end of the season after agreeing a deal with the south-west London club.
Earle, who has been named in Eddie Jones’ England squad for the Six Nations, came through the Saracens academy and has gone on to make 32 appearances for the reigning Champions Cup holders.
The 23-year-old played for England in their non-Test match against the Barbarians last year and was also a part of Eddie Jones’ party that toured Argentina. However, he is yet to make a capped appearance for the national side having failed to make an appearance on the tour.
“I’m really happy to announce that I will be joining Harlequins next season,” said Earle on the deal. “The opportunity to develop my game under the guidance of John Kingston, Nick Evans and the rest of the coaching team is extremely exciting.
“The talent coming through at Harlequins as well as the established internationals makes for exciting times and that I hope I can help the club to challenge in all competitions.
“I am now looking forward to finishing the season off strongly and teaming up with Harlequins at the start of next season”.
Harlequins Director of Rugby John Kingston added: “I’m delighted to have Nathan join us at The Stoop next season.
“Nathan has a number of attacking and defensive weapons at his disposal, but the most potent of which is his blistering pace.
“I have been particularly impressed with his strong desire to reach the very top of the game and have no doubt that he will add immensely to the environment we are building at Harlequins
