Centre Sam James has signed a new four-year contract with Sale Sharks.
The 23-year-old follows team-mates Ross Harrison, Denny Solomona, AJ MacGinty and Byron McGuigan in agreeing new terms with the Premiership club.
James made his Premiership debut for Sale in 2014 and toured Argentina with England in the summer of 2017.
“We have a fantastic squad here at Sale and everyone is really ambitious and hungry to succeed,” he told the club website.
“Sam is our Mr Versatile and he very much reminds me of Jos Baxendell who I had the pleasure of playing alongside at Sale,” added Steve Diamond.
“He’s a Will Greenwood-type player and can play in a multitude of positions and has got a superb skill-set wherever he plays.
“Sam is a great lad, a real learner and a keen student of the game. He’s very astute and we are absolutely delighted he has decided to stay with us.
“He’s only 23 and is a key part of a great group of young local lads we’ve got here.”
