Cross-code star and Rugby World Cup winner Brad Thorn has reportedly signed for Premiership side Leicester Tigers.

Thorn's departure from Super Rugby outfit the Highlanders was announced on Thursday.

The 39-year-old however has no plans to retire and according to reports in the UK will now link up with the 10-time Premiership champions for the new season.

Thorn is highly regarded in both union and league after winning a remarkable number of honours, including NRL, State of Origin, Super Rugby, Tri-Nations and Heineken Cup titles.

He won 60 caps for New Zealand before retiring after winning the World Cup in 2011.

Thorn could be a replacement for Tongan forward Steve Mafi, whose move to the Western Force was announced on Friday.
