New deal: Ed Slater

Leicester Tigers have extended the contracts of skipper Ed Slater and experienced colleagues Anthony Allen and Louis Deacon.

Other squad members David Mele, Blaine Scully, Adam Thompstone and Gonzalo Camacho have also agred new deals, though the length of these contracts have not been disclosed.

Dan Bowden, Michael Noone and Jerome Schuster are all heading for the exit door, while development squad members Pasqualle Dunn, Lucas Guillaume, Henry Purdy and Harry Rudkin have not been offered new terms.

"Continuity is always important in our squad and we like to keep the core of players together so they can work and develop together," said boss Richard Cockerill.

"Ed Slater has had an outstanding season while Deacs and Anth Allen are among the most experienced leaders in the group and we're delighted to agree new deals with all three of them.

"They are very important to the squad, on and off the field."
