Exeter Chiefs full-back Luke Arscott has agreed a new two-year contract to remain at Sandy Park.

Arscott has gone on to make 63 appearances for the club since joining in 2010 - with his form seeing him linked to a move to Clermont.

However Arscott, who has had previous spells at Plymouth Albion and Bristol, has now committed to the Chiefs until 2015 at least.

Head coach Rob Baxter told the club's official site: "Luke signing on again is fantastic news for us.

"He's a very good player, who is right on form at the moment. He was one of the first guys we brought in when we got promoted and since then he's been a cornerstone of our back division in our time in the Premiership.

"Watching him play this season, not just in the Heineken Cup, but also some big Premiership games, he's been in great form and what we've got to do now is make sure he maintains his form and knocks on again in the next couple of years.

"It will be great to have him around because he is a good guy within the squad and it kind of makes all these retention talks a lot easier as they are players we want in and around the squad as we look to move forward.

"As I've said before, I am a massive believer in continuity. Anyone who has watched Exeter for the last few years we know that and seen where that has taken us. For me, Luke has earned his starts and worked hard enough for us to say this is a guy we want to get contracted because he is a key part of what we are doing."
