Ibitoye to make return to the Premiership

Former Harlequins winger Gabriel Ibitoye is making a move back to the Premiership where he will join up with Bristol Bears ahead of next season. 


Ibitoye, 24, is currently plying his trade in Israel with Tel Aviv Heat.  


Director of Rugby Pat Lam said: “Gabriel is a hugely talented player with the pace and versatility to threaten opposition defences. 


“Coming back to the Premiership is an exciting challenge for him. We see huge potential in a young player who was in the conversation for an England call-up a couple of years ago. 


“The way that we attack as a team relies on pace and execution and Gabriel is one of the most potent finishers around. We look forward to welcoming him to the West Country.” 


Ibitoye is looking forward to the challenge and had the following to say: 


“Bristol is one of the most exciting clubs in the Premiership so it’s a fantastic opportunity for me and one I’m looking forward to taking. 


“The experience in both France and Israel has been great for my development, as a player and a person, but I still have ambitions on the international stage, and I feel I can achieve those objectives at Bears. 


“I’ve heard really positive things about the culture and environment in Bristol so I’m excited to get started next season.”
