Former All Black first five-eighth Nick Evans has re-signed with English rugby champions Harlequins for another three years.
The London club, on Thursday, local time, confirmed Evans had accepted their offer, following speculation he was being courted by other clubs.
The new contract means the 32-year-old will almost certainly finish his playing career with the club at the end of the 2015-16 season, Harlequins said.
Evans, who played 16 Tests for the All Blacks, joined Harlequins in 2008. He has played 106 times for the Harlequins first team, scoring 1184 points, including 16 tries.
"Myself and my family are happy to have the opportunity to stay at Harlequins," Evans said in a statement on the club's website.
"My decision was made easy by the ambition of this great club, the success we have had and the hunger to want more.
"The support I have had from the supporters has been amazing and I will do my best to help the club stay one of the major forces in English and European rugby."
Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea said the club was very keen to hang on to Evans.
"People say he's one of the best players in Europe and even the world. Suffice for me to say he's so exceptional I'd pay to watch him train."
