NONE of director of rugby Alan Solomons’ transfer targets turned him down according to Worcester Warriors chairman Bill Bolsover.

Tighthead prop Farai Mudariki has become Warriors' 11th summer signing after agreeing an undisclosed deal to move from third-tier French side Stado Tarbes Pyrenees.

The 23-year-old who has won nine caps for Zimbabwe is set to arrive at Sixways at the end of this summer’s Rugby Africa Gold Cup which finishes next month.

He will form part of a 45-man squad that will include versatile forward Matti Williams, 26, who has earned a one-year contract extension despite making just two starts and 12 substitute appearances in two years for Warriors.

The Premiership outfit also confirmed lock Justin Clegg, 21, and back rower Zac Xiourouppa, 20, have been promoted from the club's academy to the first-team to provide further strength in depth.

Bolsover said he was “really happy and excited” by the squad Solomons had put together as Warriors prepare for the new season.

“What is important with this club now is to create one team with one vision,” Bolsover said.

“We have now got Solly who has got exactly what he wants in his coaching team and in his squad.

“I think he would say that if you asked him.

“I don’t think he has had a player turn him down that he said he wanted in his squad.

“What he has gone for is to create a squad that plays together as we don’t want one-offs.”

Ashley Beck, Callum Black, Cornell du Preez, Michael Heaney, Jono Lance, Isaac Miller, Scott Van Breda, Francois Venter and Duncan Weir have made the move to Worcester while Michael Fatialofa is expected to join his new team-mates following the conclusion of the Mitre 10 Cup in October.

Solomons said: "We have plenty of strength in depth and I’m genuinely excited about next season.

“A big work-on for us is our consistency.

"The team has shown on a number of occasions that we can compete with the best in the league but now we must seek to do that on a regular basis as we look to try and drive up the Premiership table.”

Solomons arrived at Warriors in October as a coaching consultant before replacing Gary Gold as boss on a three-year deal in late December.

Bolsover said Solomons who turns 68 later this month was an “excellent candidate” for the job having coached at a number of clubs, including Ulster, Northampton Saints and Edinburgh.

“If you look at things in life the older you get the more you look at what is coming up behind you as opposed to what you are doing in front of you,” Bolsover said.

“Alan is at the stage in his career where he is hell-bent on making sure this club is successful and he has got a period of time now to do it.”

Warriors finished just one place above the relegation zone last season and are set to face stiff competition to retain their top-flight status again with big-spending Bristol coming up from the Championship.

“What is good about the Premiership is that it gets better every year,” Bolsover added.

“We all go out and create a better team but the standard gets better.

“If you talk to any of the players they will say the standard in the Premiership is higher than anywhere else in the world.

“Bristol are going to get better, but whether they have got a team or individual players we will see.

“But there are a lot of clubs now that are having to re-organise themselves, like Northampton and Harlequins so there is plenty going on.

“It will be really exciting to see what the first six weeks (of the season) bring.”

Warriors' 2018-19 first-team squad: Adams, Annett, Arr, Baldwin, Barry, Beck, Black, Bower, Bresler, Clegg, Cox, du Preez, Fa'osiliva, Fatialofa, Hammond, Heaney, Heem, Hougaard, Howe, Humphreys, Kerrod, Kirwan, Lance, Lewis, Mama, Milasinovich, Miller, Mills, Mudariki, Olivier, Pennell, Phillips, Potgieter, Schonert, Shillcock, Singleton, Taufete’e, Te’o, van Breda, van Velze, Venter, Waller, Weir, Williams, Xiourouppa.
