England captain Owen Farrell has committed his long-term future to Saracens.

He's signed a new deal, despite the club being relegated to the Championship next season as punishment for repeated breaches of the Premiership's salary cap.

28-year-old Farrell has made 199 appearances for the reigning European champions since coming through their academy in 2008.

"The club means a lot to me," Lions back Farrell said of his new contract. "I've been here a long, long time now and to be sorted going forward is brilliant.

"Most of the senior players are in a similar position. They'd do anything to put us in the best position possible and that was telling during the tough times this year and I'm sure that will be the case going forward as well."

Sarries' director of rugby Mark McCall is delighted that the England skipper has opted to stay with the Londoners:

"Owen has grown up at Saracens; from a teenager in our academy to a central figure in English rugby.

"His drive to improve is relentless, pushing everyone in the organisation - players and staff - to be better every day. Quite simply, Saracens would not be the club it is without Owen.

"Off the field he is a grounded family man, who cares deeply about the club and the people here. We are delighted he has committed his long-term future to Saracens."
