Wales international Alex Cuthbert is set to make an exit from Gallagher Premiership club Exeter Chiefs at the end of the ongoing season.

According to a report in the Rugby Paper, the 31-year-old is set to return back to the Welsh rugby ahead of the 2021/22 season after signed by Ospreys.

Having started his career with Cardiff Blues, Cuthbert headed to Sandy Park ahead of the 2018/19 season and has made over 20 Premiership appearances for them. He was also part of the Exeter squad that completed a double of Premiership and Champions Cup title wins in the 2019/20 season.

The 6ft 6in winger made his Wales debut in 2011 and has gone on to play 47 times for his country apart from a solitary appearance for the British and Irish Lions during the 2013 tour of Australia.

He did not play for Wales since his move to Exeter due to their policy of not selecting players under 60 caps plying their trade overseas.

Exeter are positioned second in the Gallagher Premiership table with 14 wins from 19 games and will face Newcastle Falcons next on 30th May.
