Transfer News: England star signs new contract at Tigers

International scrum-half Ben Youngs has agreed new contract terms with Leicester Tigers after more than a decade of first-team service to the club.

Youngs, 28, is a four-time Premiership title winner and last season he moved past 200 first-team appearances for his only professional club.

He became the club’s youngest-ever league player in his debut at Bristol in April 2007 and also came off the bench in the 2006/07 Premiership Final win over Gloucester before his 18th birthday.

First capped by England in 2010, Youngs remained first choice during their successful 2016/17 campaign and now has 73 caps as well as gaining selection for two tours with the British & Irish Lions.


“I am delighted to extend my stay at a club which means a great deal to myself and my family,” said Youngs.

“I’m looking forward to contributing as much as I can in the coming years as we all strive to make it as successful as possible for the club.”
