Gloucester Rugby have confirmed that winger Louis Rees-Zammit has penned a new long-term deal with the Gallagher Premiership club.

A product of Gloucester Academy, the 18-year-old made his senior debut for the Cherry and Whites last year and in the process became the youngest club player to represent them in a Premiership or an European game.

Rees-Zammit also became the youngest player to score a hat-trick of tries in the Premiership during Northampton Saints last month and has already scored five tries from four Premiership games.

"I am delighted that my contract at Gloucester Rugby has been further extended to a senior squad long-term contract. I love being at Gloucester Rugby and I am enjoying every second of being part of such a great squad," said Rees-Zammit, who was named the Gallagher Premiership Player of the Month in December.

"It’s been such an exciting year for me, and I am grateful for the support of all the staff, players and fans of Gloucester Rugby.

"My dream is to represent Wales at an international level, and I just want to keep working hard to achieve this goal, along with helping Gloucester Rugby reach our ambitions for success."

Gloucester are positioned third in the Gallagher Premiership table with four wins from eight games while they are at second in Pool 5 of the Heineken Champions Cup with two victories from five matches.
