Northampton have announced that prop Kieran Brookes is to leave Franklin's Gardens at the end of the season.

The England-capped front row, who has never featured under Eddie Jones, has made 66 appearances for Saints since his arrival at the club in 2015 from Newcastle Falcons.

"This is a decision I have not taken lightly. I've thoroughly enjoyed my three years here at Northampton," Brookes said.
