London - England fullback Mike Brown has signed a new "long-term" contract with Harlequins, the English Premiership club announced on Wednesday.

Harlequins did not specify the length of Brown's new deal, but said that he had "committed his long-term future to the club".

Brown joined Quins' academy in 2002 and has made 248 appearances for the southwest London outfit.

"I am delighted to sign a new contract with Harlequins," he told the Harlequins website.

"I believe we have some exciting times ahead of us with the new guys coming into the club this season and the young talent coming through from the academy.

"I feel we can compete at the highest level and push for silverware. Over the coming years, I will be playing at my peak.

"I feel fit, strong and with the experience I have gained by playing international rugby, it will give me every opportunity to achieve the personal goals I have set for myself to win trophies for Quins, continue to play for England and hopefully be part of the 2017 Lions tour."

Quins director of rugby Conor O'Shea added: "Mike is the epitome of what Harlequins stands for. He has come through our academy and become one of the great full-backs of world rugby.

"We are all delighted he wants to commit to his only club for what will be, in all likelihood, the remainder of his career."
