Ulster have confirmed that Ireland international loosehead prop Tom Court will leave Ravenhill at the end of the season for a Premiership club.
The 33-year-old, who joined the province in 2006, has 32 caps for his adopted country and also played 35 minutes for the British and Irish Lions.
"I feel that this is the right decision with regards to me and my career at this stage," he told Ulster's website about his call to move to England.
"It is going to be very sad when the time comes to actually leave and finish up, but there is a lot of rugby left for me with the Province. There are six months remaining of this season, so there is even more motivation for me to make the most of it while I am here and to try and help Ulster win something."
