Former Ireland fly-half Paul Burke will join Leicester from Munster at the end of the season.
The 32-year-old former Bristol and Harlequins back will play out the rest of his contract with Munster before joining Tigers ahead of the 2007 Premiership campaign.
Capped 13 times by Ireland - most recently in 2003 - he is relishing the chance to make his mark once more in England.
"This is a fantastic opportunity for me. Leicester is a huge club with huge traditions and I'm really excited about being back in the Premiership. When a club like Leicester expresses an interest, you don't have to think about it," he said.
Burke will team up with fellow Irish players Geordan Murphy, Shane Jennings and Leo Cullen at Welford Road, plus Leicester captain Martin Corry, who is a former Bristol team-mate, and his one-time Harlequins colleague Scott Bemand.
"Hopefully that will help me settle in easier and the transition won't be that hard for me," he said.
England Under-18 head coach John Fletcher insists his young side will be better for the experience after beating Italy in the bronze final to round out their 2015 Rugby Europe U18 Championship campaign in style.
