Clermont Auvergne have confirmed the signing of lock Sebastien Vahaamahina from fellow Top 14 outfit Perpignan for next season.
The highly-rated 22-year-old made his France debut in last season's autumn internationals against Australia and has since featured six times for Les Bleus. Perpignan have already moved to replace Vahaamahina in their back row next season, having confirmed the signing of Toulon flanker Virgile Bruni for the 2014-15 campaign.
