Toulouse veteran Vincent Clerc has confirmed that he will leave the club at the end of the season after 14 years.

Clerc won three European Cups and three Top 14 titles with the French giants during a glittering career at the Stade Ernest Wallon.

The 35-year-old, who has 67 caps for France, has been linked with a move to Toulon.

Clerc addressed his upcoming departure in an Instagram post, thanking the club's supporters for everything during his stay.

"After some lengthy discussions… Toulouse notified me last Friday that the club where I have spent 14 years will not be offering me a new contract to stay," Clerc said.

"I still want to have fun on the field and to face challenges, and above all, to continue to experience the intense and special emotions that rugby has given me since I was a child. Unfortunately I will no longer have the opportunity to do that here.

"We have shared some wonderful memories together, which I know will be remembered forever!"
