England and British & Irish Lions hooker Jamie George has signed a long-term contract extension with Saracens.
George, who has won three Premiership titles and back-to-back Champions Cups with the club, put pen to paper to a new deal that will keep him in north London through to 2021.
“We're over the moon to secure Jamie’s long-term future. He is fast becoming a world class player in his position, and is a key figure for both club and country," said Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall.
“Jamie is a real example for our younger players to follow. It’s well documented how patient he had to be earlier on in his career and both Jamie and Saracens have reaped the rewards from that..."
An academy graduate, George joined Saracens aged 14 and made his senior debut in 2009. He has made 177 appearances for the side and has forged a role as one of the team’s core leaders.
