Done deal.

England international Alex Lozowski has signed a new two-year deal with soon to be relegated Saracens.

But the centre will spend next season on loan at Top 14 outfit Montpellier in France before returning to reigning Premiership champions in time for the 2021/22 season.

The 26-year-old playmaker earned a first international call-up to the England squad in October 2016 before ultimately earning his debut on the tour to Argentina the following summer.

“I’m really happy to have managed to secure my future with Saracens,” he said.

“It’s a club that have been really good to me over the years and I’ve enjoyed playing here for a long time now.

“I’ll be watching closely and cheering on the lads and hoping they do really, really well next season. I think the team spirit and character will take us back to where we want to be.

“I’m glad that I’ll be able to come back and play in a great team with a great bunch of lads the season after next.”

Director of Rugby Mark McCall added:

“We are delighted that Alex has chosen to his extend his stay at the club.

“Whilst he has made great progress over the last few years, we firmly believe there is much more to come and we look forward to helping him realise his undoubted potential.”
