Bath are close to signing Ireland lock Ryan Caldwell. The 25-year-old started his career at Ulster in 2003, making his debut in 2005 before going on to make 79 appearances for the Irish club side.
He won two caps for his country while on tour in the USA and Canada in 2009.
“He is a big, powerful young lock, and will create some real problems for the opposition,” said Bath director of rugby Sir Ian McGeechan.
“He has very good skills already and will develop further as he matures.”
