Harlequins have announced that Mike Brown has committed his "long-term future" to the Aviva Premiership club.

Quins have not specified the exact length of the new contract, but it will take Brown past 15 years at The Stoop.

The fullback revealed on Tuesday that his trust in his England team-mates had been "completely shot" but it's clear his affinity to his club have only strengthened.

"I am delighted to sign a new contract with Harlequins," Brown, who joined the Quins academy in 2002, said.

"I believe we have some exciting times ahead of us with the new guys coming into the Club this season and the young talent coming through from the Academy.

"I feel we can compete at the highest level and push for silverware. Over the coming years I will be playing at my peak. I feel fit, strong and with the experience I have gained by playing international rugby, it will give me every opportunity to achieve the personal goals I have set for myself to win trophies for Quins, continue to play for England and hopefully be part of the 2017 Lions Tour."

Quins director of rugby, Conor O'Shea, added: "Mike is the epitome of what Harlequins stands for; he has come through our Academy and become one of the great fullbacks of world rugby.

"I have watched him grow and become the bedrock for whatever team he plays for. He maintains the highest of standards off the pitch and will play at the highest level for many years as a result of that.

"We are all delighted he wants to commit to his only club for what will be, in all likelihood, the remainder of his career."
