The 30-year-old former Hurricanes and Highlanders playmaker has been at Grenoble since 2010 after two years with Albi.

The departure of Stewart, who has started 14 games in this season's Top 14, was expedited after Grenoble announced the signing of Racing-Metro fly-half Jonathan Wisnieswski next season.
