Leicester Tigers have announced the signing of England international Jonny May from Gloucester Rugby for the start of the 2017/18 season.
His move to Tigers will see second-rower Ed Slater move in the opposite direction to join the Kingsholm club.
England international winger May has established himself as a key member of a successful England squad, and was named by head coach Eddie Jones in his training group for a pre-season camp last weekend.

Tigers head coach Matt O’Connor said: “We are absolutely delighted to add to the quality of our backs with the signing of Jonny May.
“Jonny is a proven international and has played a lot of rugby at Premiership and Test level and will add a lot of experience to the squad.
“He is an out-and-out finisher with an outstanding try-scoring record and I think he is a fantastic addition to the group.”
