Cape Town - Springbok flank Francois Louw has extended his stay with English Premiership side Bath.

Louw, 28, joined Bath in 2011 from Cape Town outfit, the Stormers. He is a current regular in Bok coach Heyneke Meyer's side and was recently included in Meyer's squad for the upcoming Rugby Championship.

According to the Sky Sports website, Louw has signed a long-term deal with the English club.

Bath Director of Rugby, Gary Gold, welcomed the flank's decision to extend his stay at the club. "Flo is truly a world class player, and the fact that he was so keen to stay with us says great things about what we are working to create here," said Gold.

"He could have chosen his club, and he chose to stay with us. We are delighted to have him on board."

Louw himself added: "I love playing at Bath and absolutely believe in where we're going, so signing a new deal was a no-brainer for me," he said. "I'm just happy it's all sorted so I can get back to work."
