Gloucester have signed Scottish full-back Stevie McColl from Leeds for next season.

The Fife-born former Scotland Under-20 international has spent the past three three seasons with the Headingley-based club after joining from Doncaster.

McColl, 25, earned a call-up to the Scotland squad for the 2013 autumn internationals but has yet to feature for the senior side.

Gloucester director of rugby Nigel Davies said: "He's somebody who stands out at Championship level. Leeds are a good team, who play a particularly good brand of rugby and who are fighting hard to get into the Premiership.

"Steve's been a big part of their success. He's a very strong, very powerful runner from deep and who hits good lines. He was part of the Edinburgh Academy at one stage and moved to get more opportunities.

"As a result of playing in the Championship, he's gained a lot of experience and he's shown his quality.

"I'm very excited about this guy. Both he and Mark (Atkinson, announced earlier this week as signing from Bedford) can make the step up from Championship level rugby and be a huge success.

"We're bringing really explosive players into the back line, who have got a big physical presence and that's important."

Leeds, meanwhile, have confirmed former Sale prop Lee Imiolek has agreed a new two-year contract extension to stay in the Championship.
