Saracens have announced that winger Ben Harris has signed a new long-term deal with the club ahead of their promotion to the Premiership.

A product of London Irish Academy, Harris was actively involved with the England Sevens making debut for them in the World Series in 2019. He was awarded England Men’s Sevens Player of the Year for his performances in 2020 and was part of the Great Britain Sevens squad that competed in the Tokyo Olympics.

“I’m grateful to Saracens for the continued support over the last year since I’ve joined," he told the club's official website.

"This place really does feel like home and I wouldn’t have made the memories I have done so far anywhere else.

“The care they’ve shown and the wisdom they’ve shared with me is invaluable. I’m beyond excited for the next few years at StoneX Stadium!”

The 21-year-old made his Saracens debut against Gloucester last year and has made four appearances for them since then.

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall believes Harris has all the potential to succeed at the top level.

"Ben is a player with exciting potential and a great attitude," said McCall.

"It was fantastic to see him performing so well at the Olympics and we are looking forward to supporting him and helping him realise that potential in the years ahead."
