Bordeaux - Australian international prop Sekope Kepu has signed a three-year deal with ambitious Top 14 club Bordeaux-Begles, the French club said on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old - who will join after this year's Rugby World Cup - is the second player from the Waratahs to join the club coached by former France captain Raphael Ibanez.

Fellow Australian international utility back Adam Ashley-Cooper signed a similar deal with the Top-14 side in December 2014.

Kepu has played 52 times for Australia and will be a key player for them at the World Cup being hosted by England and which gets underway in September.

Bordeaux, who were founded in 2006, were promoted to the Top-14 in 2011 and are currently fifth in the top flight after finishing 8th last season.
