Jordan Crane will leave Leicester Tigers this summer after 10 years with the club after agreeing a move to Bristol Rugby.
England international Crane has played 220 games for the Tigers, scoring 30 tries, since arriving from Leeds as a 20-year-old in the summer of 2006.
A four-time Premiership title winner with Tigers, he also captained England Saxons and gained three senior caps.
I've had an incredible 10 years at Leicester and those experiences have shaped my career. I'd like to thank everybody at Tigers for their support.
I have enjoyed every single moment of it as a player here. Most players will go through their whole career without getting to a Premiership Final, or winning one, but I'm very proud to win four as a Leicester player and play in so many big games over the last 10 years.
You cannot spend 10 years in a place without getting emotionally involved in it and a lot of us have grown up together at the club so it will be tough to move on, but that is professional sport.
I went to Colston's School in Bristol so to go back to where it all really started in rugby is exciting. Next season I will have a new challenge and I'm looking forward to it.
I am really excited about joining @bristol_rfc and be part of what they are building. Great to head back to the city where it all began.
Jordan has been a superb servant of the club over the last 10 seasons. He will go with our best wishes at the end of the season and he will always be welcome at Welford Road.
He came here as an ambitious young player and became a key part of a very successful squad, playing in grand finals with us and being capped by England.
He has always been very professional in his work and his record speaks for itself here. He's played more than 200 games and he's always been a good leader within the environment.
