Leicester Tigers and England wing Tom Varndell has extended his contract with the double Heineken Cup champions Leicester Tigers.
The international wing is currently the leading try-scorer in the Guinness Premiership and has notched up an impressive 12 tries from 17 Heineken Cup appearances for the Tigers.
"I'm very happy to be staying at the club. When we play good rugby, we're one of the best teams around. There are so many quality players here. This is a club that prides itself on being in finals and winning trophies and we're looking forward to doing that again." said the 22 year old.
Tigers head coach Marcelo Loffreda believes Varndell is one of the best wingers in England:
"He has a good attitude to his game and we are delighted he is still with us. He is a great finisher, he is one of the best right now. Re-signing our young English players is very important for us, for the club and for the England team"
Leicester Tigers are currently sitting in sixth place in the Guinness Premiership and are still in contention for a Heineken Cup spot and Guinness Premiership play-offs as they face Harlequins in the final round of the league.
