Leicester Tigers have agreed a new deal with international George Ford.

The fly-half, who signed a renewed deal in January, has extended his contract for the long-term with Tigers.

Ford, who made his club debut in 2009 at just 16 years old, has made 90 appearances for Tigers during two stints at the Leicester club.

Capped on 69 occasions by England, including helping to lead the team to the 2019 Rugby World Cup, has scored more than 2,100 points in professional rugby at club and Test level.

Speaking about the renewed deal, Leicester Tigers Director of Rugby Geordan Murphy said: “George is one of the world’s best and to have him extend his contract, showing a belief in what we are building here and the vision we have for Leicester Tigers, is exciting.

“He is as professional a player as I have seen in my career, as both a player and coach, and one of the senior leaders at our club.

“George finds ways, every day, to improve himself as a player and represents what we believe is integral here in Leicester.

“There is a lot of hard work ahead for all of us at Tigers and we see George playing a key role, on and off the pitch, in our future.”
