Despite signing a new contract at the club in the summer, England international Simon Shaw wants to leave London Wasps.
Revealing the news earlier today, a statement from the Premiership side read: "Upon his return (from the World Cup), he informed the club last week he would like to finish his career overseas."
"The club are very disappointed with this news and await an official approach for the player. Simon requested that the club did not announce this at the time for personal reasons, which the club was happy to comply with."
This is not the only blow for Wasps this week either. Head coach Shaun Edwards has decided to leave the club after 10 years, revealing his desire to pursue other opportunities in rugby.
Explaining his decision, Edwards said: "I will always have fond memories of my time with Wasps and feel ready and excited for some new challenges ahead of me."
This has now led to speculation regarding Edwards' involvement in the England set-up, with Martin Johnson and co's future yet to be deciding following a disappointing World Cup.
Despite losing Edwards, Wasps director Lawrence Dallaglio remained positive about the future, saying that it was the 'right time' for the 45-year-old to move on.
Dallaglio said: "Now is the right time for him to go on and continue to develop himself as a coach in another environment."
"We have no doubt that Shaun's reputation, greatly enhanced by his work with Wales at the recent World Cup, will present him with many opportunities at the top level of the sport."
As things stand in the Aviva Premiership, Wasps - who have denied any financial issues are behind the exits of Shaw and Edwards - sit fifth in the table after seven games.
They are next in action at home to Northampton on Sunday, looking to put a disappointing week off the pitch behind them with a positive display in front of their home fans.
