Exeter winger Alex Cuthbert has signed a one-year contract with the Ospreys which will see him return to Wales later this summer.

The Ospreys have confirmed their decision for Cuthbert, 31, who is expected to be part of the Exeter squad against the Harlequins, opponents in the Gallagher Premiership final at Twickenham on Saturday.

Cuthbert, who won 47 caps in Wales and toured Australia with the British and Irish Lions in 2013, joined Exeter in 2018 from Cardiff.

He becomes the third Chiefs player signed by the Ospreys for next season, after forwards Tomas Francis and Elvis Taione.

Cuthbert said: “I think I can add a lot to the team, and joining the Ospreys was just an exciting prospect and I couldn’t turn it down.

“I know I have to fight, work hard and prove myself with my performances on the pitch. It’s a new chapter for me, and I’m really looking forward to the challenge.”

Head Coach Toby Booth told the Ospreys website: “Alex is a proven artist at the highest level.

“He will bring with him his experience as a rugby test player and his experience with a team that has proven itself in the winning mentality, having been Premiership and European champions in 2020.”
