Newcastle Falcons have confirmed that prop Logovi'i Mulipola will rejoin the club ahead of their return to the Premiership in the 2020/21 season.
Mulipola started his professional rugby career with Leicester Tigers in 2012 and after six seasons at Welford Road, he moved to Newcastle Falcons in 2018.
He went on to play 34 times for the Falcons and helped in their campaign to gain promotion back to the top tier before joining a short-term deal with Gloucester recently until the end of the 2019/20 season.
"Logo boasts vast experience and an ability to play on both sides of the scrum, so it's great news that he will be returning to Newcastle," said Director of Rugby Dean Richards.
"His spell playing for Gloucester will help ensure he is match-sharp for when the new season starts at the back end of November, and knowing he will be on board just adds to the sense of stability around our squad."
The Falcons went on to win all the 15 games in the Championship that sealed them the top place in the table when the tournament was called off due to the pandemic coronavirus.
