Clermont Auvergne have confirmed the signing of Scarlets, Wales and Lions centre Jonathan Davies. He will join at the end of the season and has signed a contract for two years, plus an option of one more. Currently in the final year of his contract at the Scarlets, he will join up with his new club in July 2014.
Davies suffered a serious pectoral injury in Wales’ loss to South Africa at the weekend, that will see him miss the majority of the rest of the season, including the chance to face his future club in the Heineken Cup double-headers in December. He may also miss Wales’ Six Nations campaign.
Jean-Marc Llhermet, the sporting director of Clermont Auvergne, said: “His style of play fits perfectly into the type of game we play and he will bring a lot to us. Despite his young age, he possesses a huge amount of experience of top level matches, and is one of the best players in the world in his position.”
