Andy Tuilagi has joined Sale Sharks on a four-year contract.
The Samoan international, 22, can play in the centre or the wing and made seven appearances for Leeds Carnegie last season after moving to Yorkshire from Leicester.
He has won 14 Test caps and was part of Samoa's 2007 World Cup squad.
"Andy is a great acquisition for the club," said Sale rugby director Philippe Saint-Andre.
"He is young, strong and has played at international level."
