Johan Ackermann responds to speculation that links Gloucester Rugby with Newcastle Falcons and Scotland Center

Johan Ackermann says that Gloucester is "open" to strengthen their midfield choice for the next season.

Although they have used up the payslip, Cherry and White can still spend another 400,000 pounds on new recruits for damage to director David Humphreys, who previously revealed they could make at least two signatures.

A position that can be seen as a priority is the center with Owen Williams and Henry Trinder, both of whom have long-lasting injuries that may mean they miss the start of the next season.

Gloucester has been associated with Scotland's international Chris Harris on a one-year Newcastle Falcons loan agreement, which was referred from the Premier League after their defeat at Kingsholm earlier this month.

But Ackermann played a step for the 28-year-old who has eight caps under his belt.

"I don't want to put him out as a player myself, because I haven't talked about himself. It probably came from the agents," Ackermann said.

"We are open to strengthening this area while we do the damage, but there are many names that have existed in the club. David (Humphreys, rugby director) has control over it.

"Our biggest focus is now Sale and play-offs, and then we have a meeting to see who is available and will fit our style, but nothing is concluded yet."
