Munster out-half JJ Hanrahan is set to leave Munster for Top 14 side Clermont Auvergne, according to a report from France.

RMC Sport claim that Hanrahan, who is out of contract with Munster at the end of the current season, will sign a two-year-deal with the French giants this summer.

Hanrahan has faced increased competition for a starting place at Munster given the continued development of Jack Crowley and Ben Healy, along with Joey Carberry's return from injury.

Hanrahan previously played abroad with Northampton Saints, having spent two season there before returning to Munster. 

The 28-year-old has struggled to force his way into the Ireland reckoning during his time at Munster, however, and would appear to have a good chance of earning a regular starting spot with Clermont.

Clermont are a side in transition and on on the hunt for a new head coach with Franck Azema preparing to depart at the end of the season.

They do still remain in contention in the Champions Cup though and there is the prospect that Hanrahan's Munster side could face them in the quarter-finals.
