Freddie Steward decides on future after receiving ‘multiple offers’

England trio Freddie Steward, George Martin and Jack van Poortvliet have signed new deals to stay with the Premiership champions.

The future of Steward had been a particular concern for Leicester Tigers’ fans but the club have confirmed the futures of all three this afternoon.

He will now be the clubs second highest earner, taking home just under £400,000 per season.

“This is an exciting day for the club,” said Tigers boss Steve Borthwick.

“All three of these young men – George, Freddie and Jack – are proud Leicester Tigers players, who have been a part of the club since they were kids and grown up, together, at the club.

“There is so much growth in all of their games; the steps they have taken so far in their young careers has been brilliant to witness and a privilege to be a part of at Leicester Tigers.”
