Leicester Tigers have signed loosehead prop Ellis Genge from Bristol.

The 21-year-old joined the Tigers on loan in February, making five appearances and earning an England call-up for the upcoming Tests.

Genge made his senior debut for Bristol in the 2013/14 British and Irish Cup, scoring six tries in 26 appearances.

“Ellis has made a big impression in his time on loan with us,” Leicester director of rugby Richard Cockerill told the club website.

“He is a great young prospect and he seems to have found his home at Leicester in his time on loan with us.

“We hope he continues to build on that first impression and we look forward to seeing his development here.”
