England scrum-half Danny Care has signed a new two-year deal with club side Harlequins.

The 32-year-old, who has spent 13 years at the Stoop, is England's most-capped scrum-half having played 84 times since making his debut in June 2008.

Care recently played his 250th game for Quins, scoring 76 tries in the process.

"Danny offers something different in every match we play and he is a player that you never want to come up against," said Quins boss Paul Gustard.

Care was left out of England's Six Nations squad for Saturday's opener against Ireland.

"He sees things before we do up in the crow's nest and he has the skill, bravery and courage to make the decision and execute," Gustard added.

"There are very few players in the world - never mind the country - that have his talent allied to his level of consistency in performance."

Meanwhile, Samoa hooker Elia Elia, 23, has also signed a new undisclosed-length deal with Quins.
