NEWS: Gloucester Rugby have responded to a story in the French press alleging that Carl Fearns will not be joining the club in the summer ahead of the 2017/18 season.

Fearns has signed a long-term contract with Gloucester Rugby and is a key part of the club's plans moving forward. His arrival is keenly anticipated and we very much look forward to welcoming him to Kingsholm.
 
The club were contacted by Lyon recently to ask whether we would consider releasing Fearns from the contract that he signed back in November, an approach which Gloucester Rugby turned down. Having secured Fearns' signature on a long-term contract, we are disappointed to have to comment on this type of speculation.
 
As the first of the club's external signings announced for next season, Fearns will be a key player in Gloucester colours. His superb form for Lyon this season has understandably caught the eye of many observers.
 
However, Fearns has committed his long-term future to Gloucester Rugby from next season, and any stories suggesting otherwise are both unfounded and unwelcome.
