Tigers, Gloucester confirm May-Slater swap

10:28 AM BST

England wing Jonny May has swapped Gloucester for Leicester, with Ed Slater moving in the opposite direction.

It is understood that the Tigers have also paid their Aviva Premiership rivals a cash sum for a player who scored 62 tries in 138 appearances for Gloucester.

May adds to an impressive back division at Welford Road, that also includes England teammates George Ford, Manu Tuilagi and Ben Youngs, as well as Wallaby Matt Toomua.

“We are absolutely delighted to add to the quality of our backs with the signing of Jonny May,” Leicester head coach Matt O’Connor said.

“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.
