Gallagher Premiership champions Harlequins have signed Scotland centre Huw Jones.

Quins said that Jones, who has won 31 caps, will move to the Twickenham Stoop from Glasgow ahead of next season.

He becomes the club’s second international recruit this summer after Italy fly-half Tommaso Allen, who will join Quins from Benetton.

Jones, 27, said: “To be able to join the reigning Premiership champions and a side that plays such an attractive brand of rugby is a rare opportunity and one that I couldn’t turn down.

“There is a great playing group here and some fantastic coaches, and I can’t wait to get stuck in.”

Quins attack and backs coach Nick Evans added: “Huw made a big impact when he burst onto the scene a few years ago, and he has fantastic instincts for the game.

“Huw is an attack-minded player, and we believe he will fit into the Harlequins way well.

“We look for players who will suit the Harlequins DNA, and we see that in Huw.”
