Brumbies full-back Jesse Mogg has confirmed that he will be joining Top 14 outfit Montpellier on a three-year deal.

It has been reported that Montpellier, who are coached by former Brumbies boss Jake White, offered the 25-year-old double what the Brumbies had tabled.

On Friday, Mogg took to YouTube to address Brumbies fans regarding his decision to leave the Canberra outfit, and left the door open for a possible return to Australian rugby.

"I just personally wanted to let you guys know this will be my last season at the Brumbies and I'll be heading offshore to France," he said.

"This isn't the end, it's just a little departure and hopefully not for a very long time."

Speaking in the Australian press, Mogg admitted that the decision was not an easy one.

"I chopped and changed on a decision for a while. At the end of last year I thought I'd go overseas, but then I had shoulder surgery so my aims changed," he explained.

"I wanted to give the Wallabies another crack. I thought I was going to stay and over the last couple of weeks is where it changed.

"I am happy with the decision I made, things were moving along slowly with the Brumbies and part [of the decision] was security."
