Gloucester have announced that England lock Tom Palmer will join them from Wasps at the end of the season.
Palmer, 35, has enjoyed two spells with Wasps either side of a two-year stint with Stade Francais. The last of his 42 England caps came in the autumn internationals in 2012.
"Tom has a proven track record," Gloucester director of rugby Nigel Davies told the BBC. "I think he'll be a great addition to the squad we are putting together. He is still so ambitious and wants to continue to be successful. He thinks coming into the squad at Gloucester will allow him to do that."
Palmer is the latest of a number of international signings by Gloucester following New Zealand prop John Afoa, Argentina lock Mariano Galarza, Wales hooker Richard Hibbard and Scotland half-back Greig Laidlaw.
