Former Wales international inside centre Gavin Henson will join Bristol at the end of the current season, Premiership side Bath confirmed on Friday.

The 32-year-old back has made over 30 appearances in his time at the Recreation Ground outfit since he joined ahead of the 2013/14 campaign.

“I’ve really enjoyed the last couple of seasons here at Bath – it’s a great environment to be part of, and the supporters are fantastic”, revealed Henson.

“I’m looking forward to a new challenge with Bristol, but for the time being my focus is totally on Bath and doing all I can to help finish the season on a high.”

Head coach Mike Ford added: “Gavin has brought a lot of experience to the squad in his time here, and his versatility has been a real asset for us. We understand his reasons for joining Bristol, and wish him all the best there.”
