Perpignan: Continuing to recruit for next season
Perpignan have signed promising utility back Sofiane Guitoune from division two club Albi.
The 22-year-old - scorer of seven tries in his 20 appearances for Albi this term - will join the seven-time French champions next season on a two-year contract.
Guitoune is the fourth signing for next season after Perpignan, who currently sit just two points off the relegation places in the Top 14, also confirmed the signings of Alasdair Strokosch, Luke Narraway and Lifeimi Mafi.
The new recruits will help fill the voids left by Olivier Olibeau and Perry Freshwater, who are set to retire.
