Leicester Tigers boss Richard Cockerill has confirmed Toby Flood will be leaving the club at the end of the season.

Cockerill ended speculation over the 28-year-old's future by hinting strongly that he is bound for France.

"It's a lifestyle choice for him and his wife," Cockerill told BT Sport before Leicester's Aviva Premiership clash with Saracens.

"Toby rang me on Thursday and said he won't be here at the end of the season. We move on."

Toulouse is reported to be Flood's destination with Leicester interested in Freddie Burns or Rhys Priestland as his replacement. The move away from Welford Road will end a six-year association for Flood at Leicester and also means England head coach Stuart Lancaster looks likely to be without the experienced fly-half ahead of the 2015 World Cup, unless Flood has an international release clause built into his contract.
