Northampton have secured the signing of highly-rated winger Noah Cato for next season.

Cato, who has been capped by England Under-20s and Saxons, will make the move in the summer from Saracens.

And the 23-year-old, who has made 63 appearances for Sarries, is looking forward to playing alongside the likes of Ben Foden and Chris Ashton.

"Northampton is one of the best clubs in the Premiership in terms of match-day atmosphere," Cato told Northampton's official site.

"Saints have a competitive team and it will be exciting to be involved in that. Playing in a back three with two England players will be exciting.


"Saracens has been a good place for me to learn and I'm leaving without any bad memories. My experiences there have certainly helped shape me as a person.

"But I also believe that it is time for me to kick on and hopefully establish myself at the Saints next season."

Noah Cato Quotes of the week

Northampton director of rugby Jim Mallinder is excited by the potential of his new signing.

"Noah has shown his abilities and potential for several seasons, both at club level and with England Under-20s and the Saxons," said Mallinder.

"He can play both on the wing and at full back, and has pace and skill with the ball in hand.

"He is certainly an excellent prospect who will bring something good to our squad as we continue to build for the future."
