Gloucester have announced the signing of Irish winger Shane Monahan for next season.
The 25-year-old - a former Ireland international at age-grade level - joins the Cherry and Whites from Championship side Rotherham, having bagged 11 tries this season.
"It's a fantastic opportunity for me to pit myself against the very best in the English club game," he said.
"Gloucester already have some really talented backs in the squad and it's going to be great for my game to work with them. They've also signed some class players for next season so it's a really exciting prospect."
Gloucester have already confirmed the signings of All Black scrum-half Jimmy Cowan, Cornish Pirates centre Drew Locke and Newport-Gwent Dragons fullback Martyn Thomas.
