London - England back row James Haskell confirmed on Monday he has extended his contract with Premiership club side Wasps after his contract expires this summer.
Haskell, co-captain alongside Matt Mullan, has made 160 appearances for Wasps and has won 62 caps for England including appearances at two World Cups.
"I'm over the moon to be extending my contract with Wasps," said 30-year-old Haskell, who made his debut in 2002 and left in 2009 for spells in France, Japan and New Zealand before returning in 2012.
"It's the only Premiership club I've ever known and feels like home, even after my stint around the world.
"I supported Wasps as an avid fan from the age of 13, so to be able to extend my stay, and lead the boys out as captain, is a dream come true.
"Obviously it wasn't a decision I took lightly as being 30 it was really important I chose a team that I felt were going to compete and ultimately win silverware."
The European Cup winner insists the desire to win more caps under new England head coach Eddie Jones was instrumental in his decision as only Premiership-based players can be selected for the national team.
"It was important that I stayed in the UK to continue my quest to play for England again," he said.
"Pulling on that white shirt is why I get up every day and I feel I still have more to give at that level."
