Dan Biggar has put clubs across the world on red alert after the Wales captain confirmed he will leave Northampton Saints at the end of the season. 

The 32-year-old fly-half has emerged as a leading figure for club and country as well as the British & Irish Lions in the last two years or more and is unlikely to be short of offers. 

Biggar joined Northampton from Welsh region Ospreys ahead of the 2018/19 season and has become a popular figure with Saints supporters.

Northampton director of rugby Phil Dowson admitted the reduction in the Premiership’s salary cap had been an impact in allowing Biggar to move on. 

Saints are expected to sign Fin Smith from crisis club Northampton as a playmaker option. 

Biggar said: ‘I have loved my time at Northampton, a traditional rugby club which is full of great people from top to bottom. It has been a privilege to wear the jersey. ‘I wish I could have played more for the club – I missed a few matches over the last few years due to my international commitments, but there isn’t a better place to play rugby than Franklin’s Gardens. 

‘I hope we can all finish the season in spectacular fashion as we did last year and go a couple of steps further! Saints will always be very special to me and that includes the club’s magnificent supporters. ‘Northampton will be the first result I look for on a Saturday afternoon moving forward!’
