Edinburgh Rugby sign James Lang and Glen Young in double swoop
Lang, 25, was used at centre during the autumn internationals but can also play at stand-off.
Young, 26, is a former Scotland Under-20 international who came came through the ranks at Jed-Forest before earning a pro contract with Newcastle Falcons in 2012.
He joined Harlequins last year.
The pair will join Edinburgh for the 2021-22 season.
Head coach Richard Cockerill said: “James and Glen are quality, experienced individuals – one of them an international, the other of international quality. They’ll add a new dynamic to our depth and competition for places in a number of areas.
“James is a player we’ve been interested in for a long time now, so it’s fantastic to secure his signature for the club. He’s a talented, international back who can play in a number of specialist positions and will be a real asset to us.
“We’re equally pleased to sign Glen – a Borders man who’s spent his senior professional playing career in the English Premiership – and will now get a taste of a new competition, which he’s really excited about.
“He’s another player we’ve known a lot about for a long time. He’s a talented individual and a hard worker – the type who’ll fit in well to our environment.”
