Exeter Chiefs have agreed a deal to sign Wales international Alex Cuthbert from Cardiff Blues at the end of the season.
The 27-year-old British and Irish Lions winger has agreed a three-year deal with the Chiefs and will leave Cardiff after seven years at the Arms Park.
"I'm very excited about the move," said Cuthbert. "I've played all of my rugby in Wales and I've enjoyed some fantastic times over the years.
"I feel I'm at a stage in my career where I have to try something different and the challenge of going to Exeter and trying to prove myself in a new environment at the Chiefs is something that really appeals to me.
"Sitting down with Rob [Baxter, director of rugby] and Ali [Hepher, head coach] I liked what they had to say and where they said the club was looking to go in the future. Like a lot of people, I've watched how the Chiefs have not only developed into a force within the English game, but also in Europe as well over the last few years.
"I'll forever be grateful to the Blues for the opportunities they have given me.
"It's been a tough decision for me to make in terms of my future, but the time is right for me to try something new with the Chiefs."
