Moldova prop Gheorghe Gajion will leave Ospreys at the end of 2019-20 to play in French rugby's second tier.

The 27-year-old will play in Pro 2 for Aurillac after signing a two-year deal.

Gajion joined Ospreys for 2018-19 and his place in Ospreys' squad will be filled by Bristol Bears' Nicky Thomas, who is returning to his home region.

Ospreys stated: "We would like to thank Gajion for his contribution to the region and wish him all the best for the future."
