Newcastle Falcons have re-signed scrum-half Micky Young from Bath.

Young made 79 appearances for the Falcons before joining Leicester Tigers in 2011. After a mixed spell at Welford Road he then signed for Bath in 2013 but with his contract up at the end of the season, he has opted to re-join the Falcons.

Speaking on his new signing, Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards said: "We're delighted to have signed Micky and look forward to welcoming him back in the summer. He is very much an example of where we want to be with talented players from the area playing for the club and we are looking forward to seeing him develop in the side."

Micky Young said: "I'm really excited by the opportunity to come back to Newcastle. It is a massive opportunity for me and from speaking to Dean and a few of the guys who are still at the club from when I was there, the ambition of the club is awesome and I'm excited to be part of a set up out to do big things."

"Everything about the club is positive, from the style of play to the investment in things like the new pitch and I just hope I can use some of the experience I've gained in the last four years to make a really positive contribution to the club's future."
