Reddan agrees deal with Leinster

Eoin Reddan
Eoin Reddan did not figure in Ireland's Six Nations Grand Slam

Ireland scrum-half Eoin Reddan has agreed a three-year deal with Leinster and will join the province this summer.

Reddan joined Wasps from Munster in 2005 and has won the Powergen Cup, the Heineken Cup and the Guinness Premiership during his four-year stay.

The scrum-half made his debut on the international stage against France as part of the Ireland Six Nations squad.

He has won 14 caps, including two at the 2007 Rugby World Cup, and is eager to regain a place in the Irish set-up.

Reddan was not part of the Ireland squad which won the Grand Slam last month.

"It's tough for me leaving Wasps as I've thoroughly enjoyed myself over the last four years and I can't overstate how great a club it is," said Reddan.

"I would like to thank everyone for their support, particularly in my decision to go home to look to further my international career.

"I am looking forward to representing Leinster next season - they are a top club and have proved that year in, year out on the European stage.

"The biggest thing I will take from time at Wasps is the experience of playing on the biggest days of the season, playing in the biggest games and performing consistently as a team - that is an experience that will stay with me forever."
