The stand-off began his professional career with Bath and is keen for another crack at the English Premiership.

Hastings, 24, is in his fourth season at Glasgow but turned down the offer of a new contract with the Scotstoun club.

He is currently injured after damaging his shoulder while playing in Scotland’s win over Wales in Llanelli in October.

“The chance to return to play in the English Premiership with a club like Gloucester has been an ambition of mine,” Hastings told the Glasgow Warriors website. “However, this was an extremely tough decision Glasgow made a very good offer and I absolutely love being at the club and with the boys here.

“I’m still thoroughly enjoying being at the Warriors and have grown as a player and person since arriving in 2017.

“I’m extremely focussed on my rehab to return as soon as possible and can’t wait to pull on a Glasgow shirt before the end of the season, hopefully in front of a packed Scotstoun.”

Cipriani is leaving Gloucester with immediate effect. The England international fly-half joined them in 2018, but he has not played this season.

“After much deliberation. I have decided to leave Gloucester,” Cipriani said.

“I have mixed emotions about it. I am sad to leave a great club, but I’m excited for the challenges I have ahead.

“I am so proud of what we have built together, and I have enjoyed working with every one.”
