David Williams will remain on loan at Leicester Tigers from Nottingham Rugby for the 2020/21 season.

The wing joined Tigers on loan from the Championship club ahead of the resumption of the 2019/20 campaign and made four senior appearances.

A Tigers Academy graduate in 2014, Williams made his senior club debut away to Exeter Chiefs in August and scored his first senior try for the club during the final weeks of the campaign.

Speaking about the agreement with Nottingham to keep Williams in Leicester, Tigers Director of Rugby Geordan Murphy said: “David impressed us from his first day with us, when we returned to training following the postponement period.”

“He is a hard working player, who demonstrates a professional attitude off the pitch and commitment to improving every day.

“What is important to us is that he understands Leicester Tigers and the journey we are on which, having come through our Academy, he does and is committed to what we are building.

“We are extremely grateful to Nottingham for agreeing the loan with us and to have Cheese with us for next season.”
