Geraghty wants to stay at Exiles

London Irish and England fly-half Shane Geraghty says he wants to commit to Exiles, despite claims he is set to join the player exodus to France.

The 22-year-old, who is negotiating a new contract at Irish, has been linked with Parisian giants Stade Francais.

Geraghty is the second year of a three-year deal with Exiles.

He told BBC Radio Berkshire: "I'm talking about extending my contract. I'm enjoying my rugby here, so hopefully we can get something sorted."

Geraghty, who is a product of the London Irish academy, might join Wasps internationals Tom Palmer and James Haskell who announced their move to Stade earlier this week.

But Geraghty, who joined the Exiles' academy from school in 2004, added that the camaraderie at the Exiles is a strong draw to the club.

"Everyone here gets on really well - the guys who have come up together are really the nucleus of the team," he said.

"It's good to see everyone playing and playing well. We've grown up together and love playing together and love winning and that's the main thing."
