Leinster have confirmed that former star Niall Morris will return to the province after signing a short-term contract.

Twenty-seven-year-old Morris left Leinster for Leicester Tigers in 2011 and played 75 times for the Premiership side, scoring 18 tries.

"After five enjoyable years in England, I am delighted to return to my home province, Leinster," said Morris.

"I know the club well and it has fantastic players, staff and supporters. It is one of the biggest clubs in Europe and I am very much looking forward to being part of such a great set-up, again."

Leinster coach Leo Cullen added: "Niall was unlucky with injuries in his last season in England but has performed at a very high level for the Tigers in both the Premiership and in the Champions Cup," said Leinster boss Leo Cullen.

"He brings good experience to our back three, an area that is already very competitive and we look forward to seeing Niall in action on a pitch soon."
