Wales international Liam Williams will join Aviva Premiership champions Saracens on three-year deal from Scarlets at the end of the season.
The 25-year-old has made 100 appearances for the Scarlets since making his debut in 2011 and will move to Allianz Park at the beginning of the 2017/18 season.
Williams, who has won 38 caps for Wales since his debut in 2012, starred in the Six Nations and recent Autumn International series for Warren Gatland's side.
"Liam's arrival at Allianz Park next season is fantastic news," said Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall. "He is only 25-years old and has his best years of rugby ahead of him.
"Liam is arguably one of the most talented backs in Europe so to have secured his signing is real coup for the club. We'll look forward to welcoming him in the summer."
On his move, Williams added: "I am really excited about joining Saracens and having the opportunity to challenge myself in the Aviva Premiership.
"The club's reputation speaks for itself and I am looking forward to the next chapter of my career. I wouldn't be the player I am without the incredible support from the Scarlets' management, players, back-room staff and passionate supporters.
"I will be giving my all for the remainder of the season and hope to help finish on a high."
Williams is Saracens' second signing for the 2017 season joining France hooker Christopher Tolofua at Allianz Park next season.
