England international Alex Lozowski has signed a two-year contract extension with Saracens that will keep him with the Aviva Premiership club until 2020.

The 24-year-old joined Saracens in 2016 after spending stints with Leeds Carnegie and Wasps since 2012. His form with Saracens helped him claim a position in the England squad for the summer tour of Argentina this year during which he played both the Tests.

Saracens rugby director Mark McCall is pleased with Lozowski's decision to remain with Saracens.

"We are delighted that Alex has agreed a new deal," McCall said.

"Alex will have an important role to play for us as he continues to develop as a player, so naturally we are very happy to announce that he will be staying at Allianz Park until at least 2020.

"In his brief time at the club, Alex has already shown how good a player he is, but the most exciting thing for us is how much improvement we believe there is to come from him alongside our core of young, hungry, home-grown players."

The news on Lozowski came weeks after Owen Farrell, Jamie George and Nick Isiekwe also signed contract extensions with the club.

"I have really benefited from being in the environment and from being around good players and good coaches," Lozowski said.

"I think being surrounded by the calibre of guys that we've got here is only going to bring your game up. I am really grateful to be part of this team."
