Bath have confirmed Sam Vesty will join them from Leicester in the summer on a three-year deal.
The 28-year-old 6ft utility back made 164 appearances for the Tigers, but is now looking forward to the new challenge ahead.
He http://www.bathrugby.com: "I am really looking forward to coming to Bath.
"Bath Rugby appealed to me because of the exciting brand of rugby that they play.
"They like to get the ball into space and attack with ball in hand which is a style that not only suits me, but excites me also."
He added: "It is a great opportunity to enjoy a different experience.
"I have a young family, so now is the perfect time to move to a different part of the country and take on a new challenge which I think will be great for my game."
Bath head coach Steve Meehan believes Vesty will fit in well and be a big asset to the team.
"Sam has a great range of skills and is very flexible; he prefers fly-half, but he can play at 10 or 12," said Meehan. "He is a player who is team-orientated and thoroughly professional.
"He is also a very intelligent player and another goal kicker with a style of play that will definitely complement Bath when he joins us in the summer."
