Trio to join Leicester ahead of next season
Leicester Tigers have agreed to sign Noel Reid, Calum Green and Jaco Taute ahead of next season.
The Tigers have endured a very poor campaign in the Gallagher Premiership and currently lie 10th in the league, eight points clear of relegation.
They have now moved to strengthen their squad for the 2019-20 season with the acquisition of three new players.
The 28-year-old Reid, who can line up at centre or fly half, won a cap for Ireland against Argentina in 2014.
Green, also 28, came through the academy system at Leicester, made 21 appearances for the Tigers up to 2012, before leaving to join Yorkshire Carnegie then in 2014 he moved to Newcastle Falcons, the club he is re-joining Leicester from.
And, Taute, is a South Africa international, who has been with Munster since 2016.
Speaking to the official club website, Green and Reid said they were both delighted to be signing for the club.
"I'm very excited to be joining a club like Leicester, with its history and success in the game," Reid said.
Green added: "To have the opportunity to return was too good an opportunity to let go by.
"I know a lot of the players in the squad, coaches and staff and am excited to get back to Welford Road and be called a Tiger once again."
