Manu Tuilagi is one of five players to leave the club.
The Leicester Tigers have confirmed that England centre Manu Tuilagi is one of five players to have left the club.
Due to financial pressures caused by Covid-19 and a reduction in the Premiership salary cap, players have been offered revised contracts.
Tuilagi rejected the proposed 25 percent cut, with the Tigers confirmed he has now been released from his deal.
It's expected he'll make a move abroad, which would almost certainly end his international career.
Dubliner Noel Reid has also departed Welford Road.
