Bayonne will be without former France flank Julien Puricelli from next season after it was confirmed he will depart the club for Pro D2 leaders Lyon.

32-year-old Puricelli, who has been capped four times by his country, will join high-flying Lyon on a two-year contract at the end of the campaign.

Lyon sit nine points clear in France's second tier domestic competition and have already signed Hoani Tui, George Smith and Karim Ghezal.
