Fly-half George Ford will leave Leicester Tigers at the end of the season, director of rugby Richard Cockerill has confirmed.
The 19-year-old will end a four-year association with the club when his one-year contract reaches an end this summer.
Cockerill said he was "disappointed" with Ford's decision and said Leicester had done everything they could to keep him.
He added that Ford will join Bath next season which would see him join up with his father and assistant coach at The Rec, Mike Ford.
Despite Bath director of rugby Gary Gold saying there was "no deal in place", Cockerill said: "I have been told by him and his advisors that he is going to go and sign for Bath.
"From a Leicester end, it's disappointing because you want your best young players to stay.
"If players choose to move on because they don't want to stay and fight for their spot, that's cool.
"But George has had plenty of game time and Toby Flood is a very good player. We pick on merit at Leicester."
