George North will leave Northampton at the end of this season and return to Wales on a national dual contract.

The winger, who has won 69 Wales caps and scored 30 tries, has agreed a deal from next term, the Welsh Rugby Union announced on its official Twitter feed.

Northampton released their own statement confirming 25-year-old North's departure. It is not known at this stage which of the four Welsh regions he will join.

As a proud Welshman, I am excited to be heading back to Wales. I feel that the time is right and with the benefits that come with it it was a great option for me
