Leicester Tigers Director of Rugby Richard Cockerill has confirmed that England fly-half Toby Flood will be leaving the club at the end of the season.

Flood was linked to Toulon earlier this week but reports on Friday suggested that Stade Francais were leading the race.

Flood says that he has not yet made a decision on where his future will be but France appears to be the most likely destination.

Cockerill told BT Sport before Leicester's match against Saracens that Flood will be leaving the Tigers at the end of the season.

Flood joined Leicester Tigers from Newcastle in 2008 and has won three League titles.

The flyhalf has won 60 caps for England but his international career could come to an end now that he appears to be moving to France.

The Rugby Football Union has a policy of not selecting players who play their game outside of England so Flood's move to France would rule him out of the Rugby World Cup.

On Friday Flood said on his Twitter account, "To confirm, I've not agreed to anything and as I've said before I will decide in January. Thanks."
