Foran, who had a brief spell at Salford last season, is the brother of New Zealand international Kieran and will join from Parramatta.
He played for Manly Sea Eagles and Melbourne before being snapped up by Salford last February but made only 13 appearances in Super League before being released from his contract.
And he says he has unfinished business in England, where he looks certain to be playing in the Championship for the Broncos, who have lost all 17 Super League matches this year and are 11 points from safety.
"I'm looking forward to the challenge, having already played in the UK for Salford in 2013 where things didn't quite go to plan," Foran said. "I'm determined to play some really good footy that I know I'm capable of.
"Hopefully along with my fellow team-mates we can string some wins together and build some confidence as a club.
"I'm really pleased that the deal is done and I'm extremely excited about becoming a London Broncos player and seeing what next year holds.
"I've been in constant contact with (coach) Joey Grima throughout our contract talks and I've really got a good understanding about his plans for the future and how passionate he is towards success."
Foran is the first new signing for London head coach Grima, who has renegotiated deals with current players Nick Slyney and Jon Wallace.
"Having watched Liam play for the Melbourne Storm U19s right up to the NRL grade I know the standard he is capable of," he said.
"It's pleasing and refreshing that this calibre of player want to play for the London Broncos and we're all excited to see Liam at the club next season."
