Connacht have also confirmed that winger Niyi Adeolokun, who joined the province this season as a development player, has signed a two-year professional contract to stay at the Galway Sportsground.
Currently injured but expected to return to action next week, the Trinity winger has made a huge impression at the Sportsground this season.
"It is a really great story of a young man who has worked hard. This season he has put on nearly 10kg and it’s all quality. He is a crowd favourite and the quickest guy in the team."
