Exeter Chiefs have confirmed that Wales international Alex Cuthbert will join the Aviva Premiership club at the end of the ongoing season.

This will also end his 11-year association with Cardiff Blues after making his debut in 2011 and has also represented Wales Sevens side in the past.

The 27-year-old made his Wales debut in December 2011 and has featured in 48 Tests including a solitary appearance for the British and Irish Lions during the 2013 tour.

However, his move to Exeter will make him ineligible to represent Wales again due to the newly announced selection policy of Welsh Rugby Union which allows players with 60 or more Tests plying their trade overseas to be considered for selection in the national team.

"I'm excited about the move," said Cuthbert, who has signed a three-year deal with the Sandy Park outfit.

"I've played all of my rugby in Wales and I've enjoyed some fantastic times over the years, but I feel I'm at a stage in my career where I have to try something different.

"The challenge of going to Exeter and trying to prove myself in a new environment at the Chiefs is something that really appeals to me."
