Andy Powell is heading back to Wales to play for the Dragons.
Former Wales Number 8 Andy Powell is to join Newport Gwent Dragons next season.
Originally from Brecon, the back row forward has signed a one year deal with the men of Gwent.
The talented back row is a vastly experienced player, who has represented Wales and was also a member of the British and Irish Lions squad in 2009.
The 32-year-old has played for Wigan Warriors, Sale, London Wasps, Cardiff Blues and has also had spells with Newport and Llanelli Scarlets.
On signing for Newport Gwent Dragons, Powell said, "I am extremely delighted to be back in Wales. I have very fond memories of playing for Newport RFC and can remember the great support we had from fans when I previously played for them.
"I have been very impressed through the season with both Kingsley and Lyn's ambitions for the region. I am very excited for the challenges that lie ahead and look forward to challenging the other Welsh regions for silverware."
Dragons head coach Kingsley Jones, added, "I am very excited that we are bringing Andy back to Gwent to play.
"He has the X-Factor and brings a lot to the team dynamics not forgetting his great ball carrying skills.
"He will be coming back here to challenge the likes of Taulupe Faletau for a first team spot as well as adding experience to the squad."

Wales U20 may start as favourites against Japan this evening in the U20 Championship, but Team Manager Mark Taylor is warning against complacency. He is also hoping a good win will boost morale and 'kickstart' performances.
Coach Richard Hodges is hoping Wales U20 can put a disappointing campaign behind them when they tackle Japan tomorrow as they look to finish the U20 Championship strongly to secure a good seeding for next year's tournament.
