Northampton Saints prop Brian Mujati will leave the club at the end of the season to link up with French side Racing Métro.
Mujati joined Northampton in 2008 and was part of the side that reached the Heineken Cup final in 2011, but the 28-year old is eager for a new challenge after receiving a substantial offer from the Parisian side.
Mujati's team mate, Soane Tonga'uiha, has also been heavily linked with Racing after spending six years with Northampton, making over 180 appearances for the club, but is yet to make a decision on his future.
"We will be disappointed if those lads go but you can't blame them," said Northampton boss Jim Mallinder to BBC Northampton.
"They've informed me they've received some pretty substantial offers from overseas."
"[We can't compete] unless we were to have about five players in the squad. They've done brilliantly for us. I think a lot of credit [should go] to Dorian West and the rest of the players for making them better players.
"If teams come in from France who've got a bottomless pit [of money], and want to buy a front row, that's what they're doing."
