Centre Chris Harris is leaving Newcastle Falcons after exercising a relegation release clause.
The 28-year-old Scotland centre signed a two-year contract extension in February, but will now depart the club for Gloucester.
Director of rugby Dean Richards said: “Chris has been a great servant who has steadily improved during his time at Newcastle Falcons, and we wish him all the best for the future.”
