London Irish have signed former Ulster out-half  Paddy Jackson.

The Lisburn native will join Declan Kidney and Les Kiss at the English club during the summer.

In a club statement, London Irish say, "Paddy Jackson will be joining the club ahead of the 2019/20 season."

"The 26-year-old fly-half, who has 25 Ireland caps to his name, joined Perpignan in the summer of 2018. While the club has not had an ideal season, Jackson’s own form has caught the eye."

“Players of the calibre of Paddy Jackson do not become available very often and both myself and Les are looking forward to working with him in the future,” Kidney commented.

“He is a player with proven international quality who we feel will add value to our squad, and it is pleasing that Paddy sees London Irish as a part of his future.”

“I’m delighted to be joining London Irish next season at such an exciting and pivotal time for everyone involved with the club,” Jackson commented.

“London Irish have a clear vision for where they want to be and I look forward to being part of it.”

Jackson was acquitted in last year's Belfast rape trial. In April 2018, Jackson had his Ulster Rugby and IRFU contracts cancelled.
