London - Former All Black Francis Saili has signed for Harlequins, the English Premiership club said Wednesday.

The 26-year-old centre, capped twice by New Zealand in 2013, arrives at the London club from Irish province Munster.

"It's been a privilege of mine to be part of Munster Rugby for the last two seasons, however, the opportunity that lies ahead to be a part of a prestigious club like Harlequins is a great honour," Saili said in a club statement.

Harlequins director of rugby, John Kingston said Saili had signed a "long-term contract".

Kingston added: "He is a high class, quality player who is comfortable at either 12 or 13.

"Alongside his obvious talent, he will help balance the squad further by being available for us all season, which is just as important, given our ambitions as a club. Francis is an extremely exciting signing who I know our fans will really enjoy watching."
