Danny Cipriani has announced he is leaving Wasps for a second time at the end of the season.
The 30-year-old fly-half, who has 14 England caps, will call time on a two-year spell at the Premiership club.
The announcement follows reports on Monday that Cipriani may look to finish his playing career in Japan.
The Roehampton-born back progressed through the Wasps academy as a youth, and enjoyed a four-year spell in the seniors before moving to Australia to play for Melbourne Rebels in 2010.
Posting on his social media, Cipriani said: "Leaving Wasps the first time was hard enough. Now is the time to announce that I'm leaving the club for a second time.
"Sadness will most likely be the overriding emotion, come the end of May. But I'm also hoping, mixed with the sadness, will be a lot of joy as the job isn't finished yet.
"I'm loving every moment with this squad and can never fault the support of the clubs loyal fans!! You'll get nothing but my absolute commitment from myself and the team for the rest of the season.
"I will take some time to decide my next move. Thank you to the Wasps faithful! Let's go one better this year."
Cipriani has 14 caps and 64 points for England. His most recent international Test came in August 2015 against France.
He also spent four years at Sale Sharks after returning from Australia in 2012 before re-joining Wasps in 2016.
