Bath scrum-half Michael Claassens has confirmed that he is to leave the Aviva Premiership club at the end of the season.

The 30-year-old, who has been at the Recreation Ground since 2007, is expected to join French side Toulon.

"This has been a very difficult decision for me to make, but one I feel is right," Claassens is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

"I have loved my time here at Bath. I originally came for two years, and have ended up staying for six.

"I've worked with some fantastic coaches and players, and my wife and I have made many good friends since we moved over, but just feel it is the right time to make a change and have a new challenge."

Claassens has made over 160 appearances for Bath during his time with the club.
