The English lock Maro Itoje has become the last high level player to devote his future to the Saracens.

25-year-old English international follows in the footsteps of fellow rugby World Cup finalists Owen Farrell, Jamie George, Elliot Daly and Mako and Billy Vunipola by agreeing to stay at Saracens despite their relegation from the Premiership as a punishment for wage disruption capping rules.

The British and Irish Lion have made 119 club appearances to date and are excited about the challenges ahead.

“I am extremely excited to be part of this club,” said Itoje. “I have been part of the Saracens since I was 14 and we have very good memories.

“The Saracen culture is second to none and I think it’s obvious to everyone.

“I’m really looking forward to the future; the future is going to be brighter than our past. The future is in our hands and we have the power to shape our own destiny. ”

Rugby director Mark McCall said: “From his beginnings in our Academy, to being one of the club’s greatest moments, Maro has been an essential member of the Saracens project and we are delighted that he is committed for the Saracens.

“On and off the field, Maro is a hardworking, professional and thoughtful individual, who sets an example of what it means to use every opportunity given to you to improve yourself. At 25, it’s very exciting to think where he can take his game, this team and our club in the future. ”
