Gloucester fly-half James Hook to return to Ospreys
James Hook will rejoin Ospreys at the end of the season
The fly-half returns six years after he left the Welsh region
The 31-year-old has agreed on a three-year contract
Ospreys have announced that James Hook has signed a deal that will see him returning to his home region at the end of this season.
The 31-year old Ospreys centurion has signed a three-year contract and will head back to the Liberty Stadium six years after leaving to experience life in the Top 14 with Perpignan.
“It’s good for me personally as a rugby player and it’s the right thing for my family to be coming home,” said Hook.
“It’s important I finish well at Gloucester. It’s a great club and they’ve been really good to me.”
“It’s been fantastic to go away to new places, get some unbelievable experiences in England and France with two great clubs, but I’m coming home to a team that’s going places,” Hook continued.
“I’m only 31, I’m playing week in, week out with Gloucester and I think I’ve got plenty to give on the field for a few years to come.”
Hook’s return to Ospreys comes after fly-half Sam Davies and back-row forwards Justin Tipuric, Dan Baker and Dan Lydiate all signed new deals with the Welsh region.
