Leicester Tigers can confirm the signing of Finn Theobald-Thomas ahead of the 2023/24 season.
The 19-year-old will join Tigers from Gloucester Rugby, who he joined midway through the current campaign from Worcester Warriors.
Theobald-Thomas played academy rugby for Worcester, who he made his senior debut for in a Premiership Rugby Cup fixture in 2021.
The hooker represented England at age-grade levels and was selected in the England Under-20s squad ahead of the 2023 Under-20s Six Nations.
Speaking about the addition of Theobold-Thomas, Leicester Tigers Head Coach Richard Wigglesworth said: “Finn is a young man with a bright future in the game and we are pleased that will be at Leicester Tigers.”
“He has had good exposure to senior rugby at a young age and we are looking forward to seeing him continue to grow as a player as part of Leicester Tigers.
“Finn is getting great experience as part of the England Under-20s squad this year, which will strengthen his game ahead of joining us in the summer and only continue to improve while working under the guidance of Tom Harrison.”
Discussing the move to Leicester Tigers, Theobald-Thomas said: “I think the way Leicester Tigers play suits me and think I can get the best out of myself at the club.”
“There is a really good group of young lads coming through and there is an opportunity there to be a part of that.
“The idea of going down those steps on the terrace, wearing the Tigers jersey, has been something I have definitely thought about and excites me.”
