Aviva Premiership Rugby Club London Wasps have re-signed winger Tom Varndell on a contract extension that will keep him with the club for the next few seasons.

Varndell is in the form of his life this season, having crossed the try-line 13 times already and he showed his devastating finishing to great effect last weekend when he bagged three tries in the opening 13 minutes of the game, scoring one of the fastest ever hat-tricks in the 17-year history of European club rugby.

Since joining London Wasps from Leicester Tigers in 2009, Varndell has scored nearly 50 tries in 89 appearances and he is chasing down another superb record as he sits just five tries off Mark Cueto and Steve Hanley's joint Premiership record of 75.

Varndell said: "I'm really excited to be here for the next few years. The group of players we have here know what it's like when the going gets tough and I think we are all the stronger for what we went through last season. "

"Now things are looking up and we've got a fantastic squad of players here who I believe can really achieve something together in the coming seasons. "

"You only have to look around you at some of the young talent we have coming through and some of the experience that Dai Young has organised around that, to get excited about what is to come. I am loving my rugby this season and the type of rugby that we are playing at Wasps is fantastic when you're a winger."

London Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young added: "Tom has played a big part in our improvement this season and his finishing is second to none. I am really pleased he's going to be a Wasps player for the foreseeable future."
