Dragons are delighted to announce that Wales international centre Nick Tompkins is to join the region on a year-long loan.
The 25-year-old – who made his international debut earlier this year – has put pen to paper to join the Men of Gwent from English Premiership side Saracens.
The loan move has been finalised with the full support of the WRU and Wales national coaching team and we look forward to welcoming Nick to Rodney Parade in the coming weeks.
Dean Ryan, Director of Dragons Rugby, said: “We’re delighted to be able to welcome a player of Nick’s calibre to the region.
“He has enjoyed success in a Saracens shirt and he brings that winning mentality and attitude, as well as enjoying a fresh environment and competition in which to challenge himself.
“Nick’s experience will undoubtedly bring out the best in those around him in our squad and we know he will leave an indelible mark on his time at Rodney Parade.”
Capped by Wales in all four games during the 2020 Guinness Six Nations, Tompkins scored a try on his debut against Italy at Principality Stadium in the opening round of matches.
Tompkins has won four English Premiership titles and three European Champions Cup titles during his career with Saracens.
Tompkins said: “I am really looking forward to joining the Dragons.
“The region is clearly making great progress, under the guidance of Dean Ryan, and I am really excited about contributing to the cause.”
