England prop Joe Marler has signed a new deal with Harlequins that will keep him at the club until 2016.

Marler started four of England's five 2014 Six Nations games and will make his 100th appearance for Harlequins in Friday's Amlin Challenge Cup quarter-final against Stade Francais.

"We are obviously delighted that Joe has committed his future to Harlequins," Quins boss Conor O'Shea said. "It is incredible to think that at just 23, he will make his 100th senior appearance this Friday. He is, and will continue to be, a corner stone in the pack and in the success of this club. Joe is developing into one of the leading loose heads in international rugby.

"Joe still has so much more to give and like us all, is hungry for more silverware for both club and country. I am really excited, as I'm sure the Harlequins supporters will be, to see Joe's continuing development in the coming years in a quartered jersey."

Marler added: "I am really happy to have signed on again with my childhood club, Harlequins. When I was given the opportunity to re-sign for the club, there was never any doubt in my mind that this is where I wanted my long term future to be."
