ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Wasps meet Biarritz in the last eight at Adams on Saturday, 7 April, while Cardiff Blues travel to the Aviva Stadium in Dublin to take on Leinster in the Heineken Cup quarter-final on the same day.
London Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young said: "I obviously know Rhys very well having coached him for many years and he will be a real asset to our squad next season. He is an experienced international and exactly the kind of quality player we want to bring to the Club. Rhys is also a great guy to have around a squad and he will be a great addition to the Club off the pitch as well."
Thomas said: "I am really looking forward to linking up with Dai Young again who has been a big influence to me in my career and I'm excited by the challenge of playing in England with London Wasps. Like most professional players I always keep an eye on how the game is going in England and it's the kind of challenge that I know I will relish."
Thomas is one of a number of senior international players having signed on at Wasps for next season with England's James Haskell and Tom Palmer also joining Young's squad later this year.
