Tom Denton will leave Leinster and join Gloucester at the end of the season.

Denton, a 2012 signing from Leeds Carnegie (now Yorkshire Carnegie), had featured 10 times for the Blues this campaign, including appearing as a replacement in three Champions Cup pool stage games.

"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," said Denton.

 "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.”
