Leinster have confirmed that second row Tom Denton will join English club Gloucester at the end of the season.
Tom Denton will join Gloucester after four seasons at Leinster, having arrived from Leeds Carnegie (now Yorkshire Carnegie) back in 2012.
Denton made his professional debut for Leeds in the 2008 season as a 20-year old, representing the Yorkshire side in the Premiership and the Championship, going on to make 60 appearances during his time at Headingley.
So far this season, he has made 10 appearances for Leinster, including appearing as a replacement in three European Champions Cup pool games.
Denton said that while he is looking forward to returning to the Aviva Premiership, there is some unfinished business to take care of with Leinster first.
“I’m very excited about the prospect of returning to England and having another crack at the Premiership with a club like Gloucester, one with a great history but a bright future as well,” he said.
“I feel that my game has developed a lot while with Leinster and I know that I’ll need to perform well as Gloucester already have a number of quality second rows.
“However, we’ve got a big semi-final against Ulster to prepare for next Friday in the RDS and my focus is completely on that as I’d love to bring my time at Leinster to a close having helped to secure the GUINNESS PRO12 title.”
