England and British & Irish Lions fly-half Owen Farrell has signed a five-year contract extension with Saracens.
The 25-year-old outside-half has made 152 appearances for Saracens since making his debut in the Anglo-Welsh Cup in 2008, and the new deal will see him remain at the club until 2022.
Farrell has won three Premiership titles and back-to-back Champions Cups in north London, and said: "It's an opportunity to hopefully grow with this group again for the next few years; to get better and improve on what we've already done.
"This team's got a long way to go still. To see how far we can take it is exciting."
Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall said: "Owen has developed into one of the leading players in world rugby since he graduated from the Saracens academy.
"He is one of our own, so for him to commit his long-term future to the club is huge news - we're delighted that he'll be extending his stay."
