Gloucester Rugby director of rugby Nigel Davies has confirmed that Worcester Warriors flanker Matt Kvesic will join the club at the end of the season.
"He's been influential in all the teams he's played for. As an out-and-out seven he's one of the best out there at the moment. He's also a leader and in successful teams you need leaders on the park," Davies told BBC Sport.
"He's a young boy who is one of the rising stars in English rugby and for us to sign him is a big statement of intent."
Kvesic has made 55 appearances for Worcester.
