Leinster have won the race to sign London Wasps Ireland scrum-half Eoin Reddan on a three-year deal.
It will bring to an end Reddan's four-year stay at the London club where he emerged as one of the finest nines in the Guinness Premiership, playing 106 times, scoring 16 tries.
"It is tough for me leaving Wasps, I've thoroughly enjoyed my last four years and I can't overstate how great a club it is," said Reddan.
"The fitness team, physio staff and back room team are top class and make it easy for you to be at your best week in week out in what is a long season. The coaches have helped me personally and supported me over the last four years and I would like to thank them for all their help and support, particularly in my decision to go home to look to further my international career.
"I am looking forward to representing Leinster next season, they are a top club who have proved that year in year out on the European stage and they may even go on to win the Heineken Cup come the end of the season.
"The biggest thing I will take away from Wasps is the experience of playing on the biggest day of the season, playing in the biggest games and performing consistently as a team - that is an experience that will stay with me forever. I would like to thank the players, coaches, staff and the supporters for making the last four years very special."
