Sale Sharks have announced the signing of South Africa international prop Brian Mujati.

Mujati has agreed a two-year deal, and he will return to the Aviva Premiership following a long stint with Northampton before he joined French Top 14 club Racing 92.

The 30-year-old won 12 Test caps, with his final Springboks appearance being against England at Twickenham in 2008.

Sale rugby director Steve Diamond said: " This is the second time I have signed Brian.

"When I worked for Northampton, heading up their recruitment department, I spotted Brian and he was an instant success at Franklin's Gardens.

"This is a great signing for the club and will give us plenty of firepower up front. Vadim Cobilas was outstanding last season at tighthead, but we had to rely on him every single game.

" With Brian joining us, we can use both Brian and Vadim to our advantage, and along with Ross Harrison and Eifion Lewis-Roberts at loosehead, and with Tommy Taylor and Neil Briggs at hooker, we will have a very competitive front-three every game."
