Saracens captain Owen Farrell is set to end his career with the club by signing a three-year contract extension worth £800k per season.
RUCK sources suggest the playmaker’s new deal runs until June 2025 and includes and option for a further year. An announcement is expected to be confirmed in the next week.
Farrell has been chased by some of the world’s elite clubs over the past few months, but it appears the playmaker is keen to end his career with Sarries.
The 30-year-old, who currently earns in the region of £750k, is currently captain of Gallagher Premiership side Saracens and is captain of the England National Team.
That is still less than what England and Saracens teammate Maro Itoje earns, based on a recent report by Rugby Pass.
Farrell has played international rugby for England since 2012 and is one of the top points scorers in test history, having scored 1070 points from 100 tests.
