Harlequins skipper and England scrum-half Danny Care has signed a new long-term contract with his club.
Quins announced that their 28-year-old captain had committed his “long-term future” to the club but have not given the exact length. Care has won 53 caps for England and made more than 180 appearances for Quins since joining them in 2006.
Mike Brown and Chris Robshaw have already signed contract extensions at Quins and now their England teammate has followed suit.
Care said: “I really am delighted. The re-signing process was done very quickly as there was never any doubt in my mind to go anywhere else. Harlequins is a club that I love; I’m very proud and honoured to play for and captain the team.
“I love being here, I’m part of a great group of people and I’m really excited to have pledged my commitment to the club for the next few years.”
Care joined Harlequins from Leeds in 2006 and has won both the Aviva Premiership and Challenge Cup in his time in west London, being named captain this season.
He has also won 53 caps for England and was a member of Stuart Lancaster’s Rugby World Cup squad. The length of the deal has not been disclosed by Quins.
Quins director of rugby, Conor O’Shea added: “Danny is the ultimate game changer and has matured and grown in front of us all. In Danny we see the Harlequins style stamped all over the way he approaches the game.
“Captaincy is another natural progression for him and I am looking forward to watching him kick on and become an even better player.
“In my opinion, with the skillset he possesses, he should go on to win 100 caps for England and win more silverware for the club.”
Meanwhile Saracens have announced what they describe as a new “multi-year contract” for their England international hooker Jamie George.
The 25-year-old, who has starred for the Aviva Premiership side this season, joined Saracens in 2008 and was part of England’s recent World Cup squad.
