ASM Clermont Auvergne scrum-half Arnaud Pic will leave the 2007 European Challenge Cup champions at the end of the season to join Brive.
The 22 year old scrum half has signed a two year contract with the 1997 Heineken Cup champions keeping him at Brive until at least 2010.
Speaking about the move Pic said, "I have spent seven years in Clermont with the guidance of players like Pierre Mignoni and John Senio and have improved greatly. But now I would like to play more first team rugby and am really interested in Laurent Seigne's plans for Brive in the future".
Brive will play in the European Challenge Cup quarter- finals against the two times champions Sale Sharks on Friday, 4 April at 7.30 (local time) at Edgeley Park.
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
