Harlequins scrum-half Karl Dickson has extended his contract to keep him with the Premiership club until the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

The 32-year-old has proven a key figure since moving from Bedford Blues in 2009 - making more than 100 appearances while helping Harlequins to win the Amlin Challenge Cup, the Premiership and the LV= Cup in recent years.

The former England international has 16 tries in 124 appearances for Harlequins and is eager to play an important role over the next two seasons.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Quins and the success we have had over the past six seasons as a squad," he told the club's official website.

"I am delighted to extend my contract for a further two seasons with the club."

Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea added: "Karl is one of the most competitive and best people you will come across.

"He has achieved a lot over the years with us and I know he will keep on pushing us and himself to be better."
