Bath centre Kyle Eastmond has agreed terms to extend his contract at the club for a further two years until 2016.

The 24-year-old has been with Bath since October 2011 when he switched codes after playing rugby league with St Helens.

"I've learned so much since joining Bath, and that's down to the set-up here and the people around me. All I want to do is improve and to help the team achieve great things."

Eastmond has since become an integral part of the Bath midfield and has played more minutes than almost any other player.

He made two appearances for England on their summer tour of Argentina and remains part of Stuart Lancaster's squad for the Six Nations.

Bath head coach Mike Ford said: "Kyle's already an excellent player, and we only see him improving. His attitude, combined with the environment we're working to create here at Bath, will see him get even better.

"We're very pleased to have him extend with us for another two years."

Eastmond said: "I've learned so much since joining Bath, and that's down to the set-up here and the people around me. All I want to do is improve and to help the team achieve great things.

"I'm really happy to have extended my contract as there's no other club I'd rather play for."
