Jacques du Toit will leave Bath Rugby this summer for Zebre Rugby.
The 28-year-old made a try-scoring debut for the Blue, Black and White against Zebre, and has made a further 31 appearances for the club to date.
Everyone at Bath Rugby would like to wish Jacques and his family all the best for the future.
“Bath is a club steeped in history, and I’m honoured to have been able to write a short piece of that,” du Toit said.
“I have worked very hard to be involved in as many games as I have and it’s been my goal to make my family and Bath supporters proud. I leave this place knowing that I’ve given it my all.
“My family and I are grateful to everyone who made us feel welcome from day one, and to teammates and staff who have become great friends. It has been a privilege to play for the Blue, Black & White.”
Head Coach Neal Hatley added: “Jacques made an immediate impact in his first game for Bath and continued to do so every time he trained and played for our club.
“He’s an extremely competitive, hardworking man who quickly gained the respect of his teammates and coaches.
"He has a great attitude to get better every day and we knew every time he played exactly what we would get from him. We wish him Ilze and William all the very best in Italy.”
