Alex Dunbar Glasgow v Cardiff 2013

New deal: Alex Dunbar

Glasgow have received a boost after another of the club's talented young backs, Alex Dunbar, committed his long-term future to the PRO12 outfit.

Dunbar will be staying at Scotstoun until at least May 2017 after signing on for another three years.

The 23-year-old is the third player in recent weeks to have signed on the dotted line, with centre Mark Bennett and fly-half Finn Russell having also agreed new deals with the club.

Dunbar, who has three caps for Scotland, has made 42 appearances in the RaboDirect PRO12, seven in the Heineken Cup and is set to make his 50th appearance for the club against Edinburgh Rugby at Murrayfield on Boxing Day.

"I'm very happy to be staying at Scotstoun for the next three years. My game has really developed since I signed a professional contract with the club and I'm enjoying working with the coaches and players we have here," said Dunbar.

"I'm still young so I've got a lot to learn and I want to continue to work hard to develop my game.

"It was a real honour to make my Scotland debut in the summer and playing for the Warriors made that possible.

"I am very ambitious and I want to win things in Glasgow and I believe we have a squad capable of doing that.

"There are a lot of internationals at Scotstoun and that is a great environment to be playing in as it pushes you on to become a better player."
