Leonardo Senatore in action for Argentina
Worcester Warriors have agreed to sign Argentina international Leonardo Senatore from Toulon for next season.
The 28-year-old is normally deployed at back-row, but he can play at either flanker or number eight, and will join in the summer.
"He has been on our radar for the last few years and he has been in fantastic form," said head coach Richard Hill.
In a busy day for the Warriors, full-back Chris Pennell also secured a new contract.
The 25-year-old Worcester-born player has impressed during his 16 appearances this season.
"His attitude and work ethic is superb - he's really developed himself as a player," said Hill.
"He has the full confidence of the team around him, is fantastic under the high ball, a good defender and a strong runner.
"Chris has all the qualities to get even better and this is a very important re-signing for us."
