Fly-half Paul Burke has agreed terms to join Leicester when his Munster contract expires in the summer.
Paul Burke has dropped down the pecking order at Munster
The 32-year-old has made few appearances for Munster this season with Jeremy Manning now established as Ronan O'Gara's understudy.
"Leicester is a huge club and I'm really excited about being back in the Premiership," he said.
"I've had some great tussles with Leicester and know what's expected when you pull on the shirt."
Burke, who won the last of 13 Ireland caps against Samoa in 2003, has scored over 2000 points in his 15-year career.
He joined Munster in 2004 after a four-year stint with Harlequins which included winning the Parker Pen Challenge Cup.
Burke has also played for Cork Constitution, London Irish and Bristol.
"It's always difficult to leave a club like Munster," he added. "They have a very passionate following and have been very successful, but this is a professional sport and one door opens when another one closes.
"There are a lot of people at Leicester that know me and I know them. Hopefully that will help me settle in easier, they will know the way I play."
