Saracens back-row forward Jackson Wray has signed a new long-term contract with the Premiership club.

The 24-year-old came through the club's academy and has made 108 appearances for the north London side since making his first-team debut in November 2009.

"It was very easy decision to make. I've really enjoyed my time here since I arrived as a young lad," he said.

"I'm very grateful for the opportunity to extend my deal, and I'm hoping to keep the momentum going."

Saracens have not disclosed the length of Wray's new contract.

Director of rugby Mark McCall said Wray had made "fantastic" progress this season.

"Jackson has worked incredibly hard at improving all aspects of his game and is always striving to be a better player," he added. "Jackson is a key part of Saracens going forward."

England internationals Owen Farrell and Brad Barritt extended their contracts with Saracens earlier this week.
