England international Danny Cipriani has confirmed that he is in discussion with his club Gloucester Rugby on contract extension.

Cipriani joined the Cherry and Whites from Premiership rivals Wasps ahead of the 2018/19 season and has impressed since then. He has played in nine Premiership games for Gloucester helping them to the fourth position in the table but is currently sidelined with a chest injury that also puts him in doubt for England's upcoming Six Nations tournament.

"I'm chatting with Gloucester now. We're in talks about the next couple of years," Cipriani told Will Greenwood's rugby podcast on Sky Sports.

"I'm really enjoying my time here so it's definitely something I'm looking at."

The 31-year-old was recalled by England coach Eddie Jones for the first time during the summer series against South Africa last year and he made his first start in 10 years during the third Test in Cape Town.

However, Cipriani was left out from England squad for the autumn international series and the 6ft fly-half said the move to Gloucester was not made with an aim to make it to the national squad.

"I never signed for England. I signed because I thought it was the most positive move for my career," he added.

"Where I could go and have the biggest influence, obviously with a view to still be in England contention."
