Harlequins centre Tom Casson has agreed a move to Championship club Yorkshire Carnegie.

The Leeds-based outfit announced that Casson has signed a two-year contract.

The 25-year-old has made more than 60 appearances for Quins, and he becomes Yorkshire Carnegie's seventh new arrival for next season, following the likes of Kevin Sinfield, Andy Saull and Seb Stegmann.

" We are delighted to have attracted a player of the calibre of Tom to the club," Yorkshire Carnegie rugby director Chris Gibson said.

"He is very highly regarded by Harlequins, both as a player and a person, and I am sure he will fit in well in our squad."
