Gareth Llewellyn, Wales' most capped rugby player, is heading to France.
Llewellyn, who played his 90th Test in last month's 18-53 loss to South Africa, has signed a two-year deal with Narbonne, according to agent Peter Underhill.
The 35-year-old lock becomes the third high-profile Welsh player to head to France, following fullback Gareth Thomas' move to Toulouse and Stephen Jones' decision to sign with Montferrand.
Llewellyn was released by the Neath-Swansea Ospreys during the season after a dispute with coach Lyn Jones.
'Gareth is excited about the possiblity of playing in France and starting a new phase of his career at the age of 35,' Underhill said.
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.
