A former Old Albanian has put pen to paper with Northampton Saints.

Reuben Bird-Tulloch will join the senior academy at Franklin’s Gardens from next season after switching from rivals Saracens.

The 20-year-old played for OAs last year and the centre feels he has every chance of progressing with the Saints.

He said: “I am delighted to be joining Northampton and look forward to developing even further as a player here under a really impressive group of coaches.

“It’s clear that Chris Boyd is looking to bring through young players and I am excited to work both with him and the rest of the squad.”

“He’s proven himself at every level he’s featured in so far and we’re confident he has all the qualities to reach the very top.”
