Bristol winger Lee Robinson is set to quit the Championship club after agreeing terms with Leicester.

The Guinness Premiership champions had been strongly linked for a move for Robinson's Bristol team-mate Tom Arscott - but have now opted for the power of the 29-year-old.

Bristol have already seen Luke Eves, Alex Crockett and coach John Brain leave after the club failed to return to the top-flight - losing to Exeter in the two-legged Championship play-off.

With the resulting financial constraints - mainly through the loss of the parachute payments - seeing the players at the Memorial Stadium ordered to take a massive pay cut out, Robinson, Tom and Luke Arscott, Junior Fatialofa and James Phillips have all been linked to moves away.

And Robinson, who scored 12 tries last season, is set to complete a move to the Tigers after holding talks at Welford Road this week.

Robinson, who joined Bristol from Plymouth in 2005, has scored 45 tries in 109 appearances for the club.
