Worcester speedster Marcel Garvey has agreed a deal to join Top 14 side Castres, according to reports.
With Miles Benjamin also reportedly departing from Sixways at the end of the current season - to link up with Aviva Premiership rivals Leicester Tigers - Garvey has also now confirmed that he will be leaving the Warriors - according to Worcester News.
The 28-year-old has spent the past six seasons at Sixways making 65 Premiership appearances and scoring 13 tries in the process.
Worcester have already recruited Ospreys winger Nikki Walker to cover one of the departures with David Lemi also arriving. The diminutive Samoan flyer seems to be a like-for-like replacement for Garvey with Walker filling the other berth.
The pair are joining fellow new signing Jon Clarke ahead of next season after the centre confirmed his switch on Wednesday.
