French side Brive have confirmed the signing of Connacht centre Sammy Arnold.
The 25-year old will link up with the Top 14 team in the summer, having agreed a three-year deal.
Arnold only joined Connacht from Munster last year, and has made 21 appearances for Andy Friend's side so far.
His signing continues a busy few weeks for the Brive HR department, with Georgian prop Luka Japaridze and Lucas Paulos both signing new deals recently.
Brive is already home to former Ireland and Ulster centre, and are coached by another ex-Ireland international in Jeremy Davidson.
"Sam Arnold is a versatile young centre, who has a very high level of technical background," Davidson said, "He is also very aggressive in attack and defence.
"Knocking at the door for Ireland recognition for several years, he'll be with Brive for the next three seasons."
Managing director Xavier Ric added, "With his high level experience, Sammy Arnold will come and expand our back line and support our young players. We are delighted to welcome him to Brive."
A brief Connacht statement thanked Arnold for his professionalism and dedication, "and wishes him every success when he moves on to his new club next summer."
