The former Ireland player has signed a two year deal with Perpignan rugby club in Catalan.
Welcoming him to the team, Sporting Director of the French side, Christian Lanta, said: "Paddy Jackson, in the tradition of the 10 Irish, knows how to put his individual qualities at the service of the collective; confirmed goal scorer, talented lineman, Paddy has to bring to the team his experience of the international level."

Perpignan had been linked to Springbok out-half Elton Jantjies but Jackson was seen as a better fit as the club rejoins the Top 14 after four years.
Jackson was recently linked to the Sale Sharks club but rumours of his signing were ultimately false.
