Leicester have agreed to sign France centre Maxime Mermoz from Toulon until the end of the season, subject to French Rugby Federation approval.
Mermoz, who had previously been linked with a move to Bath, as made 11 appearances in the Top 14 this season.
The 30-year-old has scored three tries in 35 international appearances.
He will help Tigers cover for the loss of England centre Manu Tuilagi, who suffered a season-ending cruciate ligament injury earlier in January and Australian international Matt Toomua.
Mermoz has been linked with a permanent move to the Newcastle Falcons at the end of the season.
