Glasgow Warriors have confirmed that Scotland international Stuart Hogg will make an exit from the Pro14 club at the end of the ongoing season.
Hogg joined the Warriors in 2010 and has racked up 109 appearances in which he amassed 215 points that includes 29 tries.
The 26-year-old was also part of the dream team named at the end of the 2012/13 season of Pro12 and enjoyed title win during the 2014/15 season when Glasgow defeated Munster in the final.
Hogg said he is keen on exploring opportunities with other clubs and thanked Glasgow Warriors for the support handed to him since 2010.
“This is a decision that’s taken a great deal of thought as I’ve loved my nine seasons at Glasgow Warriors.
"I said I would decide my next step for family and rugby reasons and feel now is the right time to gain new rugby experiences and push myself in different situations where I will be challenged and hopefully improve further.
“I’m proud of what I have achieved with Glasgow Warriors and Scotland so far and would like to thank the club and Scottish Rugby for all their support.
"They have supported me when I had made my decision to move on and I know they did all they could and I’m grateful for their support.
“We are still less than halfway through my final season at the Warriors and, as current Conference A leaders in the Guinness PRO14 and second in our Heineken Champions Cup pool, there’s a chance to do something special in my last season at the club. That’s the send-off I want to give the club and the fans.”
Hogg has played 62 Tests for Scotland since his debut in 2012 and toured with the British and Irish Lions in 2013 and 2017, though his second tour was cut short by injury.
