France full-back Scott Spedding will leave Bayonne to play for Clermont next season.
South Africa-born Spedding has played in the Top 14 since 2008 when he joined Brive before moving to Bayonne four years later.
The 28-year-old earned a call-up for the autumn international matches in November due to Brice Dulin's injury, playing against Australia, Fiji and Argentina.
He will be hoping to stay in Philippe Saint-Andre's squad ahead of their 2015 Six Nations Championship opener against Scotland in Paris on February 7.
"Scott knows our championship well and we know that he is the type of guy who gives his all and who integrates well," said Clermont head coach Franck Azema.
"We are convinced that he will make further progress at ASM Clermont Auvergne."
Clermont are currently joint top of the Top 14, alongside Stade Francais, on 50 points after 16 matches while Bayonne are fifth from bottom on 32 points.
