Aramburu, 30, made his international debut against Chile in 2004 and has since won 14 caps scoring seven tries including one against Georgia in the 2007 Rugby World Cup in France.

Speaking on the new addition to his squad, Warriors` head coach Sean Lineen said: "Federico is a quality player with loads of experience having played at international level and in France with Perpignan and Biarritz. He's coming here to play rugby and will add real quality and competition to our outside backs."

Aramburu, who joins Glasgow from Dax in France, looked forward to the new challenge, saying: "Signing for Glasgow appealed to me because they are a club performing well in the Magners League and Heineken Cup.

"The team enjoyed success in reaching the Celtic League play-off last season and their future ambitions match my own.

"This year is an important one as the Rugby World Cup approaches so to play for a club that is performing well is essential."

Glasgow completed a hat-trick of signings on Wednesday with the recruitment of winger Colin Shaw and number eight Ryan Wilson.
