Wales star Gavin Henson has vowed to let his rugby "do all the talking" after signing for Saracens.

Henson will join international colleagues such as Andy Powell and Dwayne Peel in plying his trade as an English Premiership player.

But there is no indication at this stage when 28-year-old Henson will feature for Saracens after quitting the Ospreys with seven months of his contract remaining.

Neither the Welsh region nor Saracens have divulged specific details of Henson's high-profile move, such as how long his new deal is for or whether compensation or a transfer fee was paid.

And there is the added complication of his commitments to the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing series, which could seriously restrict training and playing opportunities until Christmas.

Saracens say they recognise Henson's ongoing commitment to the programme, stating: "The player's path back to full match fitness will dovetail with his participation in the show."
