England international lock Dave Attwood will return to Bath for the 2018/19 season following a loan spell with Toulon.
Attwood spent four months of last season with the French side and there had been reports linking him with a longer stay with the three-time European Champions.
However, Bath have confirmed the second rower will return for pre-season training with the Premiership club.
Bath Director of Rugby, Todd Blackadder, said: "We're really looking forward to welcoming Dave back for pre-season training. He is a huge asset to the squad, and we're really excited to have him back with us ready for the new season.
"There were discussions with Toulon, but we always wanted to bring him back to Bath. He showed during his short stint there his qualities as a player, but we also know what leadership qualities he brings on and off the field too.
"Supporters know that at his best there aren't many better players in his position, and his return will be almost like a new signing for us."
