English Premiership side Wasps have announced the signing of Australia international Kurtley Beale.

The versatile 27-year-old will become the Premiership's highest-paid player when he moves to Coventry at the end of the 2016 Super Rugby season.

Beale, who will continue to represent Australia, will replace the Ulster-bound Charles Piutau for next season.

He represented the Wallabies at the 2015 Rugby World Cup, often from the bench.
