Saracens captain Steve Borthwick has agreed a new contract with the Aviva Premiership champions.

Former England skipper Borthwick, 31, led Sarries to their maiden Premiership success when they beat Leicester in May's Twickenham final.

Saracens have not revealed the length of the new deal for the former Bath lock, but it follows hot on the heels of director of rugby Mark McCall and his entire coaching team committing themselves to the club until 2014.

"People talk about Saracens as a special club, and they are right in many ways," said Borthwick.

"There is a fantastic group of people at Saracens who work incredibly hard for each other to continue to build this great club.

"We have a long way to go in many respects, and I'm looking forward to the journey."
