Cape Town - England centre Brad Barritt has signed a new "long-term deal" with Saracens, the Premiership club have announced on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old Barritt has joined the likes of fellow England internationals Owen Farrell and George Kruis, in signing a fresh contract that will keep him at the north London club, although Saracens did not specify the exact length of his agreement.
South Africa-born Barritt joined Saracens in 2008 and four years later won the first of his 22 England caps.
He recently returned to action from an an ankle injury and will be pushing for a place in England's squad when they host the World Cup later this year.
"I am absolutely delighted to stay a part of the Saracens family," Barritt said in a club statement.
"I consider this place home, and I am really looking forward to the years ahead with this fantastic club.
"This club has really come on in the past seven seasons.
"I am very grateful to all the coaches and the players alongside me for their help in pushing me to play for higher honours."
Saracens rugby director Mark McCall was delighted that Barritt had committed his future to the club.
"Since Brad arrived at Saracens in 2008, he has developed into one of the most influential players on both the club and international scene," McCall said.
"Without question, he's the most competitive person that I've come across.
"He is a warrior, leads by example and is held in the upmost respect by everyone at Saracens.
"He is a world-class player, and is a key figure for both club and country," the former Ireland centre added.
Saracens, runners-up in both last season's European Cup and English Premiership finals, are back in domestic action against reigning English champions Northampton on Saturday after their European Champions Cup semi-final loss to French side Clermont in St Etienne last weekend.
