Gloucester Rugby have signed Samoan international Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu.
Fuimaono-Sapolu has spent the past three and a half seasons at Bath Rugby, after originally arriving at the Rec in January 2006 on a short term deal.
"I've played at Kingsholm as a visiting player and it's a great atmosphere," said the 28-year-old.
"I'm really looking forward to playing in front of that support every other week.
"I've enjoyed my time at Bath but it's a fantastic set up at Gloucester and I can't wait for the new season to start."
Eliota is a qualified solicitor and represented New Zealand Universities whilst studying in Auckland. He made his international debut against Scotland in 2005 and caught the eye with exceptional performances against England and Argentina.
He usually plays at outside centre but can also play as a fly-half and started all Samoa's matches in the 2007 Rugby World Cup in the number ten shirt, including a Man of the Match performance against the USA.
Head Coach Dean Ryan said: "Eliota is going to be a valuable addition to the Gloucester Rugby squad.
"He is an international class centre with valuable experience of playing in the Guinness Premiership.
"We've been looking to increase our physicality across the team and Eliota will bring that to the side. But, he's also possesses good speed and has quick hands so brings other things to the table."
