Harlequins have announced scrum-half Danny Care as the latest player to commit their futures to the Twickenham Stoop.
The England international has signed a new two-year contract to allay doubts his 13-year stay at the club could come to an end this summer.
A veteran of over 250 appearances for Quins, Care shared his gratefulness for being able to continue his career with the Londoners.
Care told the club’s website: “I’m delighted and incredibly proud to have signed for two more years with the club that I love.
“I’ve had 13 amazing years here and I can’t wait to see what the next few will hold.
“I really believe that the club is in a great place at the moment and we’re all working as hard as we can to get hold of some silverware soon.”
After the disappointment of last season under John Kingston, Harlequins currently occupy one of the hotly-contested play-off spots in the Premiership standings.
And while coaching staffers Graham Rowntree and Nick Easter have moved onto pastures as part of a reshuffle by director of rugby Paul Gustard, Care becomes the fourth player extend their stay in 24 hours.
Harlequins confirmed on Sunday no.8 Jack Clifford and promising winger Gabriel Ibitoye had agreed new deals, followed afterwards by the news hooker Elia Elia had done the same.
Of the four, Gustard reserved the highest praise for Care who he claimed possessed attributes unrivalled on the world stage.
Gustard said: “Danny epitomises all that is good about Harlequins and I know everyone at the club joins me in congratulating him on his new contract.
“Danny offers something different in every match we play and he is a player that you never want to come up against. 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. There are very few players in the world – never mind the country – that have his talent allied to his level of consistency in performance.
“He has bought into everything that we are trying to achieve here at Harlequins and he always brings that sense of fun that makes training so enjoyable with him around.
“He has a huge part to play in our quest for future honours. He has been the (self-proclaimed) talisman of the squad before handing over the title to the ever-smiling Mike Brown.”
