England scrum-half Danny Care has signed a two-year contract extension with Harlequins.
Care, 32, who joined Quins in 2006 from Leeds, made his 250th appearance for Quins earlier this season and has now scored 76 tries for the club.
Head of Rugby Paul Gustard said: "Danny epitomises all that is good about Harlequins and I know everyone at the club joins me in congratulating him on his new contract.
"Danny offers something different in every match we play and he is a player that you never want to come up against.
"He sees things before we do up in the crow's nest and he has the skill, bravery and courage to make the decision and execute.
"There are very few players in the world - never mind the country - that have his talent allied to his level of consistency in performance.
