Wasps have confirmed the signing of Ireland international tighthead Marty Moore from Leinster. 

The 24-year-old prop will join Wasps ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.

He had been widely linked with a move to the English outfit.

It was confirmed today that Moore will miss the Six Nations because of a hamstring problem that will keep him out for six to eight weeks.

Leinster head coach Leo Cullen said: "Naturally we are disappointed to be losing a player of Marty's calibre in particular having invested in his development over the years but we wish him well.

"Once he recovers from his hamstring issue we hope that Marty has a big part to play in our Guinness Pro12 run in."

Moore said he is looking forward to competing in the English top tier: "I'm really pleased to have signed a contract with Wasps to join next season. I am looking forward to working with Dai Young and his coaching team as well as the squad and am excited about the challenge ahead in the Aviva Premiership.

"However, up until the move I am fully committed to Leinster Rugby and I would like to thank everyone here as well as the Leinster fans for the support they have shown me."
