Scarlets fly-half Owen Williams has agreed to join Leicester Tigers at the end of the season.
21-year-old Williams has made seven appearances for the Scarlets in the PRO12 and LV= Cup this season. He is the second fly-half recruited by Leicester for next term, following last month's signature of Northampton pivot Ryan Lamb.
Scarlets coach Simon Easterby regrets the departure of the Wales U20 international, who is in the final year of a development contract with the region.
"Owen Williams has been on our development pathway for a number of years and is another example of a young player we have invested in and that has progressed well within our system - highlighted by his involvement with the senior squad this season," Easterby told the BBC.
"We had fully expected him to continue on that journey with us following the significant commitment this region has made in developing his rugby skills and experience to date.
"However, sometimes performances on the bigger stages bring with it additional attention from outside our group and he, along with his agent, have made his decision to move to England at this time at the end of his development contract with us."
"He is a young Welsh player with a lot to experience and prove.
"In making this decision, we sincerely hope he gains from his time at a Premiership club."
