Cape Town - Ruan Ackermann has put pen to paper on a new deal with English club Gloucester that will see him stay at the club beyond the current season.

Ackermann, the son of the club's head coach Johan Ackermann, joined Gloucester in 2017 and his deal was set to expire in July 2019.

While the length of the new deal was not confirmed by the club's website, it will keep Ackermann in England until 2020 at the very least. 

In August of that year, Ackermann could qualify for English residency.

"I've loved my two seasons at Gloucester Rugby so far, and it’s amazing to be agreeing to a new deal. The club, its supporters and the whole squad have embraced me since I arrived in 2017, and I can’t wait for what is to come for this group," the 23-year-old loose forward said.

"We've got a settled group, and it’s great to see players pledging their futures to the club, wanting to drive the team forward, and improving in all areas of the squad."
