Wasps have re-signed South Africa international Nizaam Carr on a permanent contract.
The 27-year-old No 8 spent three months at the Ricoh Arena earlier this season as injury cover and scored four tries in 11 appearances.
Carr returned to the Stormers in January and will finish the Super Rugby season with the Cape Town side before moving back to Coventry.

"After my brief stint at Wasps I really felt at home which is why I am so excited and motivated to be returning full-time to this incredible club," said Carr, who won the last of his five caps for the Springboks against Wales in 2016.
"The fans, management and players made me feel really welcome and I am so looking forward to this next chapter in my rugby career."
Wasps director of rugby Dai Young added: "Nizaam made a massive impact during the time he was with us in the autumn.
"As a powerful ball-carrier with plenty of pace he proved to be a really good fit with our playing style.
"His close-quarter work also really stood out in a couple of games played in bad weather.
"He also immediately became very popular with the rest of the players and the fans while the staff and coaches found him excellent to work with.
"We are therefore really delighted that he is rejoining us on a permanent basis and look forward to seeing him become part of a very strong back-row group."
Carr is one of three Stormers players departing for Europe at the end of the season.
