Update: 12:38PM Chiefs utility back Aseli Tikoirotuma will ditch Super Rugby at the end of the current season to join London club Harlequins.

The 27-year-old Fijian international has signed a two-year deal with the English Premiership side.

"Aseli is one of the most exciting backs in world rugby, and we are delighted that he has signed for us," said Harlequins rugby director Conor O'Shea.

"He comes from a winning culture at the Chiefs, is equally at home on the wing or at centre, and I am sure will fit seamlessly into the way we play here and add to the quality we already have."

Tikoirotuma has been integral to the Chiefs' Super Rugby titles over the last two seasons, scoring 11 tries in 33 games, since joining the franchise in 2012.
