Saracens have announced that Argentina international outside centre Marcelo Bosch has signed a contract extension with the Premiership side.

Capped 33 times by the Pumas, Bosch has made 40 appearances for the English club since his arrival in October 2013 from Top 14 side Biarritz.

"I'm very happy to sign a new contract with Saracens. Ever since I arrived at the club, I have been treated extremely well, and everyone have made my family feel so welcome," he said after signing the deal to remain at the club.

"One of my goals when I first came to Saracens was to keep learning. I spent seven years in France before the move, so coming here was a big challenge for me in terms of a change of lifestyle, but of course in a change of rugby as well.

"I wanted to learn more and try improve as much as I could in every aspect of the game. I'm very pleased with how things have gone so far. I'm still trying to learn, still trying to improve, and I'm still enjoying myself."

The 31-year old added: "I am very happy to be staying here, as my family and I have enjoyed our time at club so far. We're looking forward to years ahead."

Director of rugby, Mark McCall said: "Marcelo has worked incredibly hard since he arrived at the club, back in October 2013. Since then he has made huge improvements in his game and is constantly looking to get better as a player.

"What's pleased us most about Marcelo is that he has rediscovered his love for the game. His hunger and determination to improve is second to none. We're all delighted that Marcelo has decided to extend his stay with the club."
