Prop Cian Healy is expected to miss the start of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations after undergoing surgery on his injured ankle on Wednesday.
The 22-year-old winger was named as the Development Player of the Year in Auckland last season and Connacht coach Michael Bradley is pleased with the latest addition to his squad.
He also confirmed that talks are taking place with a back row player in a bid to further strengthen his squad.
"We are in discussions with a wing forward and we hope that there will be a positive development shortly," said Bradley.
