Glasgow Warriors have confirmed that Scotland international Tommy Seymour has signed a one-year contract extension with the Pro14 club.

Seymour made his professional rugby debut with Ulster in 2010 and switched to the Warriors a year later. Since then the 30-year-old has racked up 122 appearances for the Scotstoun outfit and is also the second highest try scorer for the club behind DTH van der Merwe.

“It’s a decision I’m very happy with. My family is very happy in Glasgow and it’s a club I feel a massive part of. Among the coaching staff and players I’ve made some great friends here and I can’t really imagine being anywhere else," he said.

“There are so many things Glasgow as a club has enabled me to do in my career and I can’t thank them enough. I’m really proud and happy to be able to say I’ve been a part of this club for as long as I have.”

Seymour's Scotland debut came in 2013 and has overall featured in 46 Tests in which he managed 19 tries. He was also one of the two Scotland players selected in the initial British and Irish Lions squad to tour New Zealand last year but he did not feature in any of the three Tests.

“We’re absolutely rapt that Tommy has re-committed. He’s very highly regarded and has been an important part of the fabric here for a number of years," said Glasgow Warriors head coach Dave Rennie.

“His skillset makes him a crucial member of our back three. He is world class under the high ball and has electric pace. He’s a good man and we’re pleased that he sees his future in Glasgow.”
