England fly-half Owen Farrell has put pen to paper on a new long-term contract extension at Premiership side Saracens.

The 23-year old has made 109 appearances for the club since making his debut in the Anglo-Welsh Cup in 2008.

Speaking about committing his future to Saracens, Farrell said: "I’m chuffed (to have signed). I’ve loved every minute that I’ve had at Saracens, and how we’ve been going over the last few years – hopefully we can continue to get better and better.

"I owe a lot to this club, in terms of how I’ve improved as a player and how I’ve done in my career. Hopefully I’ve given as much to the club in return. I’m delighted that I’ll be been able to extend my deal here and I’m really looking forward to rip into the rest of the season and the years ahead.

"I’ve come through alongside some great people. Guys who have worked really, really hard together, so for us to have come through now and hopefully play an important part in this group is extra special.

"You don’t have to ask any of us who have come through the academy system what it means to pull on the Saracens shirt. I’d like to get as many caps as I can for this club, it’s a brilliant place with brilliant people, and we’re constantly improving. I can’t seeing anybody wanting to leave that."

Director of rugby, Mark McCall added: "Owen is one of the leading players in Europe, if not the world, so for him to commit his long-term future to the club is fantastic news.

"He is another player who has progressed through the ranks at Saracens to become a key player for club and country. 

"He is a Saracen through and through, and his hunger and drive to keep on improving is exceptional. The whole club is looking forward to seeing him at Allianz Park over the coming years."
