Former England fly-half Olly Barkley has signed a contract extension with Championship-bound London Welsh.

Capped 23 times by his country, the 33-year-old joined the Exiles last year and has gone on to make 21 appearances.

London Welsh, who are bottom of the Premiership and already relegated to English rugby's second tier, have not disclosed the terms of the new deal.

"It's not been an easy year but I'm committed to seeing my journey with London Welsh through," said Barkley.

"I'm really looking forward to working with our new team and the reinvigorated coaching regime, which is being put together, to put this season behind us and lay a strong foundation for promotion back to the Premiership for the 2016-17 season."
