Scrum-half Haydn Thomas and forward Kai Horstmann have both agreed new deals with the Exeter Chiefs.

The pair will stay at Sandy Park until at the summer of 2015 and join Ian Whitten, Dave Ewers, Tom Johnson, Damian Welch, Jack Yeandle and Dean Mumm who all recently agreed new deals with the Chiefs.

Exeter coach Rob Baxter said: "First and foremost we're really pleased with how both guys are playing.

"The other part of it is we're really pleased with the kind of men they are, their personalities around the squad, the way they train."

"When I've been watching the squad work together, I think they're two very important people to us."

He added: "It's great to see Kai fit for the whole season this season and getting as much game time as he has. I think he's proved what a good Premiership performer he is."

"Haydn has been a bit unfortunate with a couple of niggly injuries this season, but we know he's a solid Premiership performer. He's in a position with a lot of competition now with Dave Lewis, Will Chudley and Stu Townsend starting to come through from our academy, but his experience in the Premiership is invaluable in keeping a strong squad."

Baxter has already signed Thomas Waldrom from Leicester Tigers and Moray Low from Glasgow Warriors and feels the make-up of his squad for next season is beginning to take shape nicely.

He said: "You look at how the squad is coming together for next year, with Moray Low coming in to fill one of our tight-head slots, Thomas Waldrom coming into the back-row, we're starting to look like a very good, competitive squad again."

"We'll be bringing in another tight-head prop, we'll be bringing in another lock and a midfield back. We have also got some re-signings to do with some of our academy players as well."

"The news of the other contracts being signed will come out over the next month or two, but our squad is almost complete for next season."
