Gloucester captain Billy Twelvetrees has signed a new contract at the Premiership club.

The 26-year-old is entering his fourth season at Kingsholm, having moved from Leicester Tigers in the summer of 2012.

The centre, who has won 19 caps for England, was named club captain for the new season last week and also became a father earlier this week.

"It's been incredible and I couldn't be happier. I love being a Gloucester Rugby player," said Twelvetrees.

"I was honoured to lead the team last year and genuinely humbled to be asked to do so again.

"Now the new contract and the new arrival really are the icing on the cake. Gloucester is very much my club and very much our home.

"Knowing that this is where my future lies is a huge bonus, and I'm really looking forward to the new season and helping us to realise our undoubted potential."

Twelvetrees, who missed out on selection for England Rugby World Cup squad, leads Gloucester against Newcastle on Friday,
