Ospreys tight-head prop Dmitri Arhip has signed a two-year contract extension with the region.

The 26-year old Moldovan was contracted until the end of the 2015-2016 season but has extended his stay until the summer of 2018.

Arhip joined the Ospreys in 2012 after a spell playing for Yenisey-STM Krasnoyarsk in Russia.

"I still have lots to learn but I'm pleased to be with the Ospreys for another three years," Arhip said.

"My family are happy in Swansea, we like living here and I like playing for the Ospreys, so life is very good."

The Moldovan international began his career at Kishinev Blue Marine before moving to Dinamo Bucharest in Romania, where he won the national title, and a further spell in Russia.
