Wasps have confirmed that centre Ben Jacobs has signed a contract extension with the club to keep him in black and gold.

Jacobs returned to the club in 2013 and has made 77 appearances for Wasps. He has made a run of seven starts, before injury cut short his playing time.

“We’re really pleased to keep Ben at the club," said Wasps director of rugby Dai Youngs.

"He has been a valuable member of this squad since he returned from Australia and, this season in particular, has shown that he has a lot to add to this group both on and off the field. Unfortunately a shoulder injury ended his season early, but he is working hard to get back out on the field and we’re looking forward to having him back playing.”

Ben Jacobs said: “I’m very pleased to have signed a new deal. The club’s definitely heading in the right direction and I love it over here. I love Wasps, it’s like my second family and I’m really enjoying it. The Coventry move has been a fantastic thing for the Club; all the people up there have really embraced it and it’s great to see so many of our long-standing Wasps fans watching us at the Ricoh as well. We are all really looking forward to what we can do in a settled home.

“I was really enjoying my time out there on the pitch, enjoying my rugby and I am very happy to extend my contract to stay at this club for a little while longer. There is a lot of good talent, a lot of young talent as well, which is great. I’ve really enjoyed playing with those guys and I look forward to continuing to build those relationships and helping the younger guys improve.”
