However, Sale Sharks has also been rumoured to be in the running to bring Cipriani back to the AJ Bell Stadium after his four-season stint from 2012.
The announcement will bring to an end Cipriani’s second spell with Wasps after returning to the club in 2016 after spells at Melbourne Rebels and at the Sharks.
The 14-time capped England international confirmed earlier this month he’d been in talks with a French club but his future remained undecided.
Director of rugby Dai Young said: “Danny is moving on at the end of the year and we wish him well.
“We would also like to thank him for all his efforts in a Wasps shirt.
“As he says, now this decision has been made public we can all concentrate on the really important three-and-a-half months of rugby which lies ahead.
“This begins for Danny, the rest of the squad and staff at the Ricoh on Sunday, where our focus is fully on the challenge presented by Exeter.”
