Leicester set to tie up May deal

8:43 AM BST

Jonny May is on the verge of joining Leicester Tigers, and forming a mouthwatering back line alongside England colleagues George Ford and Ben Youngs.

BBC Radio Leicester reported on Wednesday that May was leaving Gloucester for Welford Road, and ESPN understands a deal is close with Ed Slater set to move in the opposite direction.

The transfer, which is also understood to include a cash payment to Gloucester, should be finalised by next week once medicals have been completed.

Leicester are keen to add a winger to their squad having lost Peter Betham and JP Pietersen, while the chance to link up with England teammates Ford and Youngs is appealing for May.

Former Tigers captain Slater is an England Saxons international, who toured New Zealand with England in 2014 and captained his country in a tour match against the Crusaders.
