Bristol have signed back-row forward Jon Fisher from fellow Premiership club Northampton Saints.

Fisher, who has represented England at Saxons level, joined Saints in 2014 and made 25 appearances for the club.

Fisher, who previously played for London Irish, missed most of the 2013-14 campaign with a serious injury.

"Jon is an experienced Premiership performer and has the right characteristics to fit in well," said director of rugby Andy Robinson.

"He's a young man whose versatility provides us with plenty of options. Jon is highly regarded by those who have coached him and we're looking forward to welcoming him to Bristol."

Bristol returned to the top flight for the first time since 2009 with a 60-47 aggregate victory over Doncaster in May's Championship play-off final.
