London - Leicester Tigers have announced the signing of Australia international Matt Toomua for next season.
The 25-year-old was part of the Australia squad that reached the World Cup final last month.
He can play at flyhalf or inside centre and is currently with the Brumbies.
"I'm very excited to be joining the Tigers," Toomua told Leicester's official website.
"It's a great opportunity for me to be a part of such a successful organisation with such a proud history."
Toomua has scored four tries in 31 internationals for the Wallabies, including playing in five matches at the recent World Cup, although he started only one of those, against Uruguay.
"It is no secret we have been looking to sign a top-class player to add to our back-line resources and Matt is certainly in that category," said Leicester's director of rugby Richard Cockerill.
"He is still a young man but has already achieved such a lot in Super Rugby and played extensively in Test rugby for the Wallabies."
