Aviva Premiership champions Saracens have completed the signing of experienced winger Joe Maddock from Treviso.
The 32-year-old New Zealander was a proven finisher in the Premiership during a successful spell at Bath.
And now Maddock is relishing the chance to return to England after a year spent plying his trade in Italy.
"I am delighted to be returning to England, and to be joining the champions," said Maddock, who scored 35 tries in 96 Premiership appearances for Bath.
"I visited the Saracens training ground recently and anybody can see there is a real determination to build a happy, successful and special club, on and off the field. I can't wait to join the family."
Director of rugby Mark McCall believes the experience of Maddock will be vital for his side.
"Joe was universally admired as the leading try-scorer in the Premiership in 2009/10, and he will bring proven talent, personality and a voice to our backline," he said.
