Hogg, who has won 63 caps and toured twice with the British and Irish Lions, will move to Sandy Park from Glasgow Warriors.

The 26-year-old is Exeter’s first new signing ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.

Hogg has spent nine seasons with Glasgow and established himself as one of the most exciting broken-field runners in world rugby.

“I am very excited about the move - it’s a great opportunity for myself and my family,” Hogg said.

“Like a lot of people, I have seen how the Chiefs have risen over the last few years, and I am a big fan of the way they play their rugby.

“This is a decision that has taken a great deal of thought, as I’ve loved my nine seasons at Glasgow Warriors.

“I said I would decide my next step for family and rugby reasons, and I feel now is the right time to gain new rugby experiences and push myself in different situations where I will be challenged and hopefully improve further.”
