RFU Championship leaders Newcastle have agreed two-year contracts with Adam Powell and Kieran Brookes.
Powell, a 26-year-old centre, has made three appearances since joining from Saracens in March, while Leicester prop Brookes has spent time on loan at the Falcons this season.
Brookes, who has now been recalled by the Tigers, is well-known to the Falcons faithful with the 22-year-old having previously spent two seasons at the club before moving to Leicester.
Newcastle director of rugby Dean Richards said: "I am thrilled that Adam and Kieran have signed for us, and I am very much looking forward to working with them. "They are both quality acquisitions, and they can see what we are trying to do at the club in the long-term."
