England international Maro Itoje yesterday committed his future to Premiership champions Saracens on a long-term deal, ending any speculation about a move elsewhere.
The 24-year-old, who became a Sarries centurion in October, has put pen to paper on a deal until the summer of 2022.
Itoje has developed into an international regular, playing 29 times for England and the British and Irish Lions collectively, and his performances have led him to be regarded as one of the best locks in world rugby.
“I’m really pleased to be staying on at Saracens,” he said.
“I’ve been at the club for 10 years now so I am really excited to see what the future holds for this great team.”
And holding onto the player of his calibre doesn’t come cheap. According to RugbyPass his new salary is somewhere in the region of £750,000 to £1 million – making him England’s highest paid player. Is he worth that much?
