    Cape Town - Scottish club Edinburgh has confirmed the signing of Bulls prop Pierre Schoeman.

    The 23-year-old has penned a three-year-deal and will join the club following the conclusion of his side's Super Rugby season.

    On securing a move to the Scottish capital, Schoeman told the club's website: "I am truly honoured and excited to join Edinburgh. It's a beautiful city filled with tradition and culture.

    "I can't wait to pursue my dreams and give all my effort, time and attention to Edinburgh and its supporters.

    "I am forever grateful to the Bulls and its fans and I thank them for their support over the years."

    Edinburgh head coach Richard Cockerill, added: "We're delighted that Pierre will join the club next season. He's a young, dynamic prop, who has a big future ahead of him.

    "Pierre has shown his quality in Super Rugby and we're excited to see what he'll bring to what is an already strong Edinburgh front-row."

    In 2014, the loosehead was named in the South African U20 squad for the Junior World Championship held in New Zealand where he scored against Scotland in a 61-5 group stage victory.

    Schoeman has so far played a pivotal role in the Bulls Super Rugby season, starting in all six of the Pretoria-based side's 2018 fixtures, including a man-of-the-match performance in the 33-23 victory over Stormers last weekend.

    The Bulls, who are currently 12th in the overall Super Rugby standings, have a bye this weekend.
