Bordeaux-Begles have signed France international winger Sofiane Guitoune on a two-year deal from next season.

The 25-year-old, who previously played for Agen and Albi, will depart Perpignan after a two-year stay following their relegation from the Top 14.

Guitoune earned his first two caps for France last autumn, but has not played since January after rupturing his Achilles tendon during a Heineken Cup tie against Gloucester.                

He becomes Bordeaux-Begles' fifth recruit for next season after Lionel Beauxis (Toulouse), Yann Lesgourgues and Francisco Gomez-Kodela (Biarritz) and Julien Le Devedec (Brive).

The club are also finalising the signings of Sebastien Taofifenua (Perpignan) and Berend Botha (Mont-de-Marsan).
