Saracens have confirmed that lock Callum Hunter-Hill has signed a long-term permanent deal with the club.

Hunter-Hill joined Saracens as an Academy loan player in the 2019/20 season and has now made 15 appearances since then including nine games in the Premiership. He has now penned a three-year deal with the club as they are set to feature in the second tier Championship next season after facing automatic relegation for series of salary cap breaches.

Prior to his association with Saracens, he also played for Scottish clubs Glasgow Warriors and Edinburgh apart from loan stints with London Scottish and Newcastle Falcons. The 23-year-old lock has also captained Scotland Under 18 and Under 20 teams in the past.

“It’s a mixture of relief and just happiness,” said Hunter-Hill in a statement released by the club.

"No questions about it really, I was totally excited and really keen to sign my future here and settle down at such a great environment and a great place to be.

I’m so excited to fulfil the potential I feel I’ve been riding off for quite a while and really keen to get the most out of myself and here really is the best place to do that.

“It’s a pretty exciting project to be a part of. The young players here are going to take their game to another level next year in the Championship and that’s going to be a great thing.

“I really wanted to be a part of that and I really want to be a part of that rebuild not only for next year but for the foreseeable future.”
