Scotland international Sean Maitland has extended his stay at Saracens after signing a new deal at least until 2022.

The 31-year-old joined Saracens in 2016 and has made 73 appearances for them scoring 29 tries. Maitland, who has made 50 Premiership appearances for the club also played a key role in them winning a double Champions Cup and domestic title last season.

“I’m very happy to extend my Saracens; it was a bit of a no-brainer for me,” Maitland said to the official website of the club.

“My family love it here, we’re settled and I wanted to stayed because I love being here and I love what the club is about and the people that are in it.

“We’re one big family. That comes right from the top, from the owner, into the group and the Academy. We’re all aligned, one big family, and for me that’s important.

The 6ft 2in winger has been capped 43 times for Scotland since his debut in 2013 and represented the Dark Blues in the 2015 and 2019 World Cups.

“Sean has made an outstanding contribution to our club over the last four years both on and off the field," said Director of Rugby Mark McCall.

“He has taken his game to a new level during that time and has had a great influence on some of our younger players. To have a player of Sean’s quality and experience commit his future to the club is a huge boost.”
