Wing has agreed one-year deal with Allianz Park outfit starting in the summer
David Strettle will rejoin Saracens next year on a one-year deal from French Top 14 outfit Clermont Auvergne.
The wing left Allianz Park in the summer of 2015 to move to Clermont, but will head back to north London next term after three seasons in France.
The 34-year-old won two Premiership titles during his first stint with Sarries from 2010 to 2015.
And the 14-cap England international is looking forward to being a Saracens player once again come the summer.
“An opportunity arose in France which I took as a fresh challenge, but now can’t wait to come home and hopefully make some more great memories,” he told the club website. “Some of my best friends are at Saracens, so I can’t wait to get back out on the field and be a part of the same team with them again.
“I now have a wife and a fantastic daughter – we are looking forward to bringing them back to London, where I know Saracens will welcome us all with open arms.
