“There comes a time in a player's career sometimes that you realise you could benefit from something fresh”
Dumfries-born De Luca began his career at Edinburgh in 2005 and, apart from a single season at Border Reivers in 2006-07, has been at Murrayfield since.
He made his Scotland debut against France during the 2008 Six Nations.
De Luca said: "I will always be proud of my time here and leave with no regrets. I respect the club in their decision to move in a different direction and I wish the young Scottish lads all the best coming through."
Solomons said: "There comes a time in a player's career sometimes, especially when you've been at a club for a long period, that you realise you could benefit from something fresh and new.
"Nick has been a great servant of the club over the years and we wish him the very best."
