New Gloucester deal for Morgan

Olly Morgan

Gloucester full-back Olly Morgan has signed a three-year contract extension with the Aviva Premiership club.

The 26-year-old has spent his entire professional career at Kingsholm since joining in 2004, making over 100 appearances for the Cherry and Whites.

Morgan, who won two England caps in 2007, is the latest player to commit his future to Gloucester, with Jim Hamilton, Will James, Charlie Sharples and Henry Trinder having all agreed new deals recently.

"I'm over the moon really. I've been here for eight seasons now and I'm probably classed as a bit of an old man," Morgan told the club's website.

"It's a great club to be at and I'd be happy to spend the rest of my playing days here. When the contract was offered, I didn't hesitate at all.

"It was a short process and I'm thankful things have been done. Getting it out of the way means I can focus on the rugby.

"I enjoy the way we play our rugby and, with the players we've re-signed and the players that are going to be signed, I think the future is bright."
