Maro Itoje signs long term deal to remain with Saracens

England and Saracens veteran second row Maro Itoje has committed his future to the North London club by signing a long-term deal.

Itoje’s signature is a major boost for the club following the confirmation that Owen Farrell will be departing at the end of the season to join Top 14 outfit Racing 92.

Speaking about his decision to remain at Saracens, Itoje said, “Saracens is my home, and I couldn’t be happier to be staying here.

“Looking back I am very proud of what we have achieved over the last 10 years and it is the best place for me to keep progressing.

“With the squad we have, I really believe we have some massively exciting times ahead, and I can’t wait to be a part of it moving forward.”

Clearly ecstatic to keep one of his key players in place, director of rugby Mark McCall praised the lock’s dedication to the club.

“Maro has gone from a promising academy prospect to a global figure in Rugby. He is a world-class player, but what sets Maro apart is his dedication to his craft; the standard he sets, how he goes about his work -on and off the field- and how this expresses his love for the club and for the game.

“We are delighted he will continue to be at the heart of the Saracens project. We know the best of Maro is yet to come.”

Itoje’s news comes hot on the heels of Saracens confirming the signing of former Harlequins star Joe Marchant from Top 14 Stade Francais.
