Paris - Australian wing Adam Ashley-Cooper is to leave French Top 14 outfit Bordeaux at the end of the season, the player revealed on Friday.

The 32-year-old with 116 international appearances and who starred at three World Cups arrived in Bordeaux in 2015 and has been a rich source of tries for them.

"A few days ago they told me my contract would not be extended which is a shame," Ashley-Cooper said.

"Sports-wise and family-wise we love it in Bordeaux and love living in France. I'll have to give it (what to do next) some thought," he said.

Playing wing mostly of late Ashley-Cooper has spoken passionately about the Top 14 and how much he has enjoyed being part of the most challenging of championships, where his club Bordeaux are currently mid-table.
