England centre Brad Barritt has become the latest player to renew his contract with Premiership side Saracens.

The 28-year-old has made 142 appearances for Sarries since joining from Super Rugby side Sharks in 2008.

"I consider this place home and I'm really looking forward to the years ahead," he said.

"It's been a privilege to be a part of this squad's evolution over the years. The club has really come on in the past seven seasons."

Barritt follows Marcelo Bosch, Owen Farrell, Maro Itoje and George Kruis in signing an extension to his contract at Allianz Park.

The north London club have not disclosed the length of his new deal, but have said it is "long-term".

South Africa-born Barritt made his England debut against Scotland in February 2012 and has won a total of 22 international caps.

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall described Barritt as a "world-class" player.

"Since Brad arrived at Saracens he has developed into one of the most influential players in both the club and international scene," he said.

"He's a warrior, leads by example and is held in the upmost respect. He is a key figure for both club and country."
