Wasps have signed the experienced Italy prop Lorenzo Cittadini.

Cittadini, 31, will become the third Italian at Wasps next season, joining Azzurri team-mates Andrea Masi and Carlo Festuccia.

The tighthead, who has won 32 caps for his country, joins Wasps from Benetton Treviso.

Wasps director of rugby Dai Young said: "Lorenzo will be an excellent addition to our squad next year. I rate him as a very good prop at the highest level and his experience at international level will be a real boost for us.

"We've got some very good young props here at Wasps who will learn a lot from working with him. We want to build a squad which has strength in depth in every position and bringing in players like this will help us continue to build on that aim."

Cittadini will join other new signings Bradley Davies, James Gaskell and Rob Miller at the club next season.
