Former Munster and Ireland scrum-half Peter Stringer has joined Aviva Premierships side Sale Sharks on a one-year deal.

The 37-year-old joined Bath in the summer of 2013 but they decided not to extend his contract and Sale will become the fourth Premiership side the diminutive number 9 has played with over the past four years.

Director of Rugby Steve Diamond said, "Once I heard that Peter was looking for a new club I made my move and I am delighted he has decided to join us.

"He, like Chris Cusiter, has bags of experience and I am sure he will be a great addition to our squad.

"Peter will also be able to assist youngster James Mitchell who is improving all the time and will no doubt be fighting for a place in the team soon."

After his departure from Bath was announced, Stringer was linked with a move to Leinster but that will not now transpire.
