Nick Abendanon may be heading for pastures new, but Bath have tied up the contract of centre Kyle Eastmond for two further years.
Recently selected in Stuart Lancaster's Elite Player Squad, Eastmond has become an integral part of the Bath midfield and has played more minutes than almost any other player. Young, talented and English, Eastmond encapsulates the ambition and excitement surrounding Bath.
"Kyle's already an excellent player, and we only see him improving," said head coach Mike Ford.
"His attitude, combined with the environment we're working to create here at Bath, will see him get even better. We're very pleased to have him extend with us for another two years."
"I've learned so much since joining Bath, and that's down to the set-up here and the people around me," said Eastmond.
"All I want to do is improve and to help the team achieve great things. I'm really happy to have extended my contract as there's no other club I'd rather play for."
