Ulster have pulled out of deal to sign Fijian forward Leone Nakarawa.

He had been due to move from Glasgow to Belfast this summer but it's been cancelled after he failed a medical examination

Former Racing player Nakarawa had returned from a long-term knee injury in January.

“We can today confirm that, on receipt of a detailed medical report following an examination by the club at the weekend, Leone Nakarawa will no longer be joining Ulster Rugby for next season," the northern province announced. 

“This outcome is disappointing for both the player and Ulster Rugby, however, we will continue to build strongly with our preparations for next season.

"We wish Leone the very best for the future."
