London Irish hooker Tom Cruse will join Wasps at the end of the season.
Former Rotherham star Cruse, 26, has played three Aviva Premiership and three European Challenge Cup games this season.
A converted flanker, he has done enough to impress Wasps director of rugby Dai Young.
Young said: "Tom was the stand-out hooker in the Championship last season while playing for Rotherham Titans and he's also impressed every time he's put on the shirt for London Irish this season.
"Tom is a young, mobile hooker and we know there's plenty more to come from him as he's still maturing and developing as a player."
Cruse said: "I am delighted to be joining Wasps next season. Having met with Dai Young, the ambition and direction of the club is clear to see and the opportunity to be part of that going forward is one I am very much looking forward to as a player.
"I would like to thank everyone at London Irish for their support and will continue to give everything I have until the end of the season."
Cruse is the fourth signing to be announced by Wasps for the 2016/17 season, joining Danny Cipriani, Tommy Taylor and Marty Moore.
