England fly-half George Ford will leave Bath at the end of the season, the club has announced.
Ford - who moved to The Rec in 2013 and has since made 32 appearances for England - is returning to former club Leicester for the start of the 2017/18 season.
The former Gloucester fly-half Freddie Burns will come the other way from Leicester to Bath where he started his career in the Academy.
26-year-old Burns has made more than 60 appearances for Leicester since arriving there after a seven-year stint at Gloucester.
He made his senior England debut in 2012 against New Zealand and was part of the national squad for tours to Argentina and New Zealand.
Burns said he was looking forward to representing his hometown club next season.
Ford's return to the club where he made his first-team debut as a 16-year-old had been widely expected.
The fly-half had featured more than 40 times in Leicester colours before moving to Bath.
He helped Bath reach the 2014 European Challenge Cup final and Premiership final a year later, and is also firmly established in Eddie Jones' unbeaten England side.
Ford said he was grateful for his time at Bath and had found it hard to leave:
Bath's Director of Rugby Todd Blackadder said he was sad to be losing Ford but looking forward to working with Burns:
