The Highlanders have added Blues back Tevita Li to their speedy winger stockpile from next year.

Li, 21, has signed a one-season Super Rugby deal for 2017, when he'll battle with All Black Waisake Naholo and Fijian international Patrick Osborne for a starting role.

The former age group standout will hope to enjoy the same success as Naholo and the Highlanders' Test centre Malakai Fekitoa, who both thrived after shifting south from the Blues.

Li scored eight tries in six appearances for the New Zealand under-20 team and has been a first-choice selection at the Blues this year, starting in all their 12 games to date.
