"I want to broaden my horizons. I have been with Montferrand for eight years and simply want to try something else," Bory told weekly newspaper France Rugby.
"The decision is taken as I have not re-signed my contract with Montferrand. It's as simple as that."
But while he seems set on moving abroad, the wing does not appear to have any firm plans on where his career will take him next, although England is top of his list.
"My preference is an English club as the Zurich Premiership is setting the standard, with top class matches every weekend," said Bory.
"I'd like to play alongside and against the likes of Robinson, Dallaglio, Cohen, Wilkinson, Hill every weekend."
There is sure to be plenty of interest in the 26-year-old, given his excellent showing for the French national team since his Test debut against Ireland in the 2000 Six Nations championship.
Bory has now made 16 appearances at international level, scoring his two Test tries in the record 35-3 win over Canada last November.
