Premiership club Harlequins have signed scrum-half Scott Steele following his departure from London Irish.
The 26-year-old was released by the Exiles earlier this month, having featured 127 times during a six-year spell with the club.
Former Scotland Under-20 international Steele will compete for a first-team place with Danny Care and Martin Landajo.
“I’m really excited about a new challenge,” Steele said.
Steele will be eligible to play for Quins when the 2019-20 campaign restarts on 14 August. The season was suspended in March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The south-west London club have not disclosed the length of Steele’s contract at The Twickenham Stoop.
