Sale Sharks have completed the signing of Russian second-row forward Andrei Ostrikov from French club Aurillac.

Ostrikov, 23, will follow his countryman Vasili Artemiev into the Aviva Premiership next season after Artemiev recently landed a deal with Northampton.

"Andrei is a big, athletic lad who has been coached well in France," said Steve Diamond, Sale's executive director of sport.

"His desire is to spend some time in England, and he's a hungry lad. He has a giant opportunity awaiting him here."
