Centre Jamie Helleur has added his name to the list of players who have committed their futures to the Newcastle Falcons.
Scrumhalves Chris Pilgrim and Warren Fury signed new contracts earlier in the week, and Helleur has now joined them by putting pen to paper on a new two-year deal.
"I am extremely excited at what lies ahead for the club and its supporters," the Samoan international told Newcastle's official website.
"It is great to be back into pre-season training and to see many new faces at the club, and I can't wait to get started in the Aviva Premiership.
"I love the area and more importantly the passionate fans, and I believe this club can challenge at the highest level."
Falcons chief Dean Richards expressed his joy at securing the 29-year-old's services.
"Jamie has a lot of experience having played in the Super 15 and ITM Cup, as well as in the Aviva Premiership gained from his first season at Kingston Park," said Richards.
"I am delighted that he is staying with us as we continue our preparation for the new season."
