Harlequins flanker Luke Wallace has signed a new contract with the Premiership club.

The 26-year-old came through the club's academy and has scored 16 tries in 135 appearances for Quins since making his first-team debut in 2009.

"My decision to renew was a quick and easy one," the uncapped Englishman said.

"Harlequins is all I've known during my career and I can't imagine being anywhere else."

Wallace, a specialist openside, has made 135 appearances for the Club since his debut against Newcastle Falcons in 2009 and has scored 16 tries.

The Harlequins academy graduate, who captained the club in the Aviva ‘A’ League and LV= Cup winning campaigns in the 2012/13 season, was called into the England Saxons squad that same season, before representing England’s XV side against the Barbarians in May 2014.

He enjoyed another stellar season with Quins last season being named adidas Supporters’ Player of the Season, IG Players’ Player of the Season, and DHL Player of the Season.

Harlequins director of rugby John Kingston added: “He is respected hugely in the group, both as a person and as a quality back row forward.

“It is something of a mystery to me that he has not yet taken the step to the international squad to challenge for appearances on the highest stage.

"With the undoubted development, which still lies within him, I am sure it is only a matter of time.”

Quins have not disclosed the length of Wallace's new deal at The Stoop.
