Gloucester sign Lloyd from Tigers
Leon Lloyd
Lloyd made over 200 appearances in 10 years with Leicester
Leicester winger Leon Lloyd is to join Gloucester in the summer on a two-year contract after 10 years at the Tigers.

Lloyd has just had a testimonial season at Welford Road and made 11 Premiership appearances last season.

"Leicester's a fantastic club and I am fortunate to say I was involved in one of the most successful periods in their history," said Lloyd, 29.

"But now I have a chance to experience a new culture at a club who are trying to create their own period of history."

Lloyd made his breakthrough at Leicester in the 1996/97 season as a 19-year-old, playing in the Heineken Cup final loss to Brive that year.

He was included in England's 1999 World Cup squad and made his international debut a year later, and scored two tries in Leicester's 2001 Heineken Cup final win over Stade Francais.

Gloucester head coach Dean Ryan was delighted to complete the signing of Lloyd.

"Leon is a tremendously gifted and adaptable player and someone we are thrilled to have in our squad," he said.

"He will offer a significant attacking threat, is powerful, strong and has an excellent try-scoring record at the highest levels.

"Having played in 50 Heineken Cup matches, his experience alongside our younger backs will be invaluable."
