Camacho has four caps for Argentina

Exeter Chiefs have signed versatile back Gonzalo Camacho on a two-year deal from Premiership rivals Harlequins, their ninth signing ahead of next term.

The 26-year-old Argentina international spent two seasons with Quins, appearing on 30 occasions for the London club.

Exeter boss Rob Baxter said: "He is a very tough competitive player which is obviously very attractive to us.

"He's a really good signing for us and a different kind of player to what we have here already."

With four recent international caps to his name, Camacho is likely to be in contention for a place in Argentina's squad for the forthcoming World Cup in New Zealand.

"I am very excited about this new experience and coming to live and play in Exeter," said Camacho.

"I have heard nothing but good things about the club and having played at the stadium in Exeter, I loved the crowd.

"Harlequins is a great club with lots of great people, I have made many good friends there and that is priceless for me, but now I am looking forward to my new start with Exeter."
