Vernon was a Scotland replacement against England on Saturday
Sale Sharks have signed Scotland international Richie Vernon on a two-year contract.
The 23-year-old back row will join the Premiership club from Glasgow Warriors in the summer.
Sale executive director of sport Steve Diamond said: "He is part of the current Scotland squad and I am delighted that Richie is joining us.
"He is a hard-working flanker or number eight and he will fit in very well with my plans for next season and beyond."
Vernon came on as a replacement for Scotland during
Sunday's 22-16 Calcutta Cup defeat against England
"Steve Diamond is very clear on the way forward for Sale Sharks and I am delighted to commit myself to the club for the next two seasons," Vernon added.
"Having broken into the Scotland side, I see playing in the Aviva Premiership as a challenge that will only improve me as a player."
Vernon, who has represented Scotland at all levels, has 10 full international caps and becomes Sale's seventh signing for next season.
