Koree Britton has joined Northampton Saints

KOREE Britton has left Gloucester with immediate effect to answer an injury SOS at Northampton Saints.

The 22-year-old was cautioned by police after being caught trying to film a woman changing at Leisure@Cheltenham in March.

It was agreed the hooker would be released from the final year of his contract with the Cherry and Whites, if he could find another club.

And following a hooking crisis, which has seen Dylan Hartley and Matt Williams ruled out through injury and Mike Haywood playing through the pain with a shoulder complaint, Britton has joined the Saints until the end of the season.

Gloucester are also now in the market for a hooker, with Huia Edmonda also set for the Kingsholm exit door.

British and Irish Lions Test star Richard Hibbard will arrive in the summer but only he and Darren Dawidiuk are committed to next season.
