Harlequins have announced that Alofa Alofa has signed a new deal, extending his time at the Premiership side on a long-term contract.

The news comes as Harlequins prepare for their opening match of the Anglo-Welsh Cup against Exeter Chiefs on Saturday, the final of which will be hosted at The Stoop on Sunday, March 19.

The three-time capped Samoan centre has made six appearances for Harlequins since making his debut during the victory over Bristol at the London Double Header.

"He is a fabulous talent and I have made the swift decision to extend his original one-year contract.

"I am delighted he has committed his long-term future to Harlequins."

Commenting on the news Alofa added: "I am honoured to have extended my time with Harlequins. Since joining in the summer, my family and I have settled in well. There is a great buzz around training and I’m excited to be able to play my part for the next few years."
