France prop Rabah Sli­mani has signed a three-year con­tract with Cler­mont, the Top 14 lead­ers con­firmed yes­ter­day. Sli­mani, 27, will join Cler­mont from Stade Fran­cais next sea­son and his deal also in­cludes an op­tion for a fourth year. The front-rower is the club’s sec­ond ma­jor re­cruit for 2017 af­ter also sign­ing Scot­land cap­tain and scrum-half Greig Laid­law from Glouces­ter in the English Premier­ship. “It’s a big change, but I know the club and the area will bring me a lot per­son­ally and from a sport­ing per­spec­tive,” Sli­mani told Cler­mont’s web­site. Sli­mani won the Top 14 ti­tle with Stade in 2015 but an­nounced his de­par­ture at the start of this sea­son, with Raphael Lakafia, Geoffrey Doumay­rou, Hugo Bon­neval and coach Gon­zalo Que­sada all since re­veal­ing they too will leave the Paris-based out­fit. —AFP
