Ambitious Top 14 new-boys Lyon have continued their summer recruitment by signing former England full-back Mark van Gisbergen.

Van Gisbergen, who was capped once by England, has agreed a two-year deal to make the move from Wasps.

Lyon turned their attentions to the 33-year-old, who spent nine years at Wasps, after failing in their bid to lure Italy international Andrea Masi from Racing-Metro.

Lyon have also secured a deal to sign young fly-half/centre Laurent Trainier from Biarritz.

The 21-year-old came through the youth ranks at Toulouse, before going on to help Biarritz to the Heineken Cup final in 2010.
