England centre Mike Tindall has signed a new three-year deal with Guinness Premiership leaders Gloucester.
Tindall joined Gloucester from neighbours Bath in 2005
It means the 29-year-old, a World Cup winner in 2003, is set to stay at Kingsholm until at least 2011.
Tindall said the emergence of a new generation of talent was central to his decision to stay.
"There is so much we want to achieve as a group of players and I want to see this job through. We have only really just scratched the surface," he said.
"Seeing the likes of Anthony Allen, James Simpson-Daniel and Ryan Lamb and the things they can do is fantastic, it is keeping me young.
"It is just great to be involved with a club which plays rugby the way we do. It gives players freedom to express themselves and I think that is why we are being successful."
Tindall joined the club from Bath in 2005 and helped them to the 2006 European Challenge Cup.
