Harlequins have signed England-capped forward Nick Kennedy from Toulon.

The 31-year-old, who has seven caps for England, moved to France last summer where he featured as part of Toulon's Heineken Cup-winning side.

"Winning the Heineken Cup will rank among the highlights of my career [but] the opportunity to return to England has come at the right time," said Kennedy.

"I'm looking forward to the challenge and to being part of an exciting squad of talented players."

Before moving to France last year, the second-row previously spent a decade at London Irish where he made 219 appearances.
