Wasps have secured the future of another one of their promising young talents after Sam Jones signed a new contract.

The back-row forward joins the likes of Elliot Daly, Joe Launchbury and Christian Wade in committing himself to the Adams Park club.

The 21-year-old has already made more than 50 appearances in the black and gold, including 24 this season as his name has become a regular on their team-sheet.

Jones, who was named Wasps' young player of the year in 2012, said: "I have been involved as a player with Wasps for around ten years now and I feel a real loyalty to the club.

"I am excited about what the future holds for this squad and with lots of young talent staying here, we are heading in a very positive direction."

Director of rugby Dai Young said: "I am a big fan of Sam's and his work rate and professionalism is excellent on and off the field.

"I am convinced he will be a long term regular first team player for this club with huge potential to develop further at international level if he continues to progress as well as he has."
