Northampton Saints centre Fraser Dingwall has signed a new contract with the Premiership leaders.

The 24-year-old has scored 23 tries in 115 appearances for the club since his debut in 2018.

Dingwall has played for England at age-group levels but although he has been named in senior training squads, he has yet to win his first cap.

"I feel like, this year especially, we're really pushing on towards winning some trophies," Dingwall said.

"The coaching team here is really, really impressive and I couldn't see anywhere else that I'd develop more as a player.

"I want to play international rugby, and win trophies here with Saints. Those are the next steps for me and I'm pushing hard on both fronts."

Dingwall joined Northampton at the age of 14 from hometown club Cambridge RUFC.

He has played 11 games so far this season, with his only try coming in a 34-19 home win over Exeter Chiefs in November.

"Despite his age, Fraser is very much one of the senior players and a leader within our squad, particularly on the defensive side of the ball," said director of rugby Phil Dowson.

"The fact that he has been recognised internationally and picked in so many England training camps shows that he has the ability to play at that level already.

"It's tough to break into international rugby, but I am confident Fraser can get there because of his ability to make all the players around him better."

The length of Dingwall's new deal has not been disclosed by the club.
