Allan, who has won 61 caps, will join Quins from Pro14 side Benetton Treviso next season.

The 28-year-old made his Test debut in 2013 and will add to Quins’ flyhalf resources alongside players such as Marcus Smith.

“Playing for a club like Quins is what a lot of players dream of,” said Allan.

“It’s a prestigious team with lots of history. The club’s style of rugby is similar to how I like to play. It’s an exciting team with an attacking mindset.”

Harlequins general manager Billy Millard hailed the signing.

“He allows us great depth at flyhalf and, as a proven international, he brings fantastic pedigree to what is a talented backs unit at the club,” he said.
