He has signed a two-year contract, with the option of extending it for another year.

Whitelock made his Canterbury debut in 2008 and first played for the Crusaders a year later, going on to earn 55 Super Rugby caps.

Adam played several Crusaders games alongside his three brothers - All Blacks lock Sam, one-Test flank George and former junior All Blacks captain, Luke.
