London Wasps have signed England sevens winger Richard Haughton on a two-year deal from Saracens.

The 29-year-old featured 19 times for the Premiership runners-up this season, scoring five tries.

Wasps director of rugby Tony Hanks said: "Richard is a top-quality player, comfortable at wing and full-back."

"His 10 years with Saracens, and his impressive record on the sevens circuit, make him a valuable addition to the squad."

Haughton won a silver medal with the England sevens team in the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne and has scored over 100 tries on the IRB World Sevens circuit.

He said: "For me it is the right time for my next challenge and the Wasps set-up is one which players seem to really respond to.

"To have the opportunity to join a club with such quality coaches and players, and to test myself in a different environment sets up a really big season for me - a challenge that I really relish."

Haughton is Wasps' sixth new signing ahead of next season.
