London - Northampton Saints and former Springbok tighthead Brian Mujati will leave for French Top 14 club Racing Metro at the end of the season.

According to the BBC website, Mujati, 28, is eager for a new challenge and has decided not to take the option of a third year on his Saints contract.

Saints director of rugby Jim Mallinder said: "We will be disappointed if he goes but you can't blame him."

"If teams come in from France who've got a bottomless pit (of money), and want to buy a front row, that's what they're doing."

Zimbabwe-born Mujati, has 12 caps for the Springboks after making his debut on June 7, 2008 against Wales in Bloemfontein. He has scored three tries in the Green and Gold.
