Australian utility back Zack Holmes will join French Top-14 outfit Toulouse at the end of the season from rival club La Rochelle.
Holmes joined La Rochelle in 2005 and scored 254 points in his first season in France.
The former Western Province and sevens international player, who kicked 20 points in La Rochelle's win over Toulouse last month, operates at ease at fly-half, in the centre or as a fullback.
"We've been after him for some time because we have been looking for an all-rounder and his kicking has made him a key member of his current club," said Toulouse sports director Fabien Pelous.
"At 26, Zack also has the double advantage of youth and experience, which will enable it to register permanently in the sports project of the club."
