Kyle Eastmond has signed a new two-year deal with Bath Rugby.
Eastmond, who is in England's Elite Player Squad, has established himself at inside centre for Bath and will stay at the club until 2016.
"Kyle's already an excellent player, and we only see him improving," Bath coach Mike Ford said. "His attitude, combined with the environment we're working to create here at Bath, will see him get even better. We're very pleased to have him extend with us for another two years."
Eastmond added: "I've learned so much since joining Bath, and that's down to the set-up here and the people around me. All I want to do is improve and to help the team achieve great things. I'm really happy to have extended my contract as there's no other club I'd rather play for."
