Worcester Warriors have signed Leicester fly-half Ryan Lamb with immediate effect.
Lamb, 27, is an experienced Premiership player and has amassed 932 points in 133 appearances. He has also featured regularly in the Heineken Cup, racking up 302 points during 42 matches.
"I've really enjoyed my time at Leicester but a lack of game time meant that when the opportunity to join Worcester came up, I didn't want to pass it by," Lamb said. "I've obviously worked with Dean [Ryan] before at Gloucester and after finding out what he's building at Worcester, I was excited and wanted to be part of that journey and part of that new culture."
Ryan, Worcester's director of ruby, said: "I am looking forward to renewing my relationship with Ryan at the Warriors, where we have a different challenge to those we have faced before."
"When the chance to bring him here came up, I didn't want to miss the opportunity to add another talented English back to the team here at Worcester."
