Rees has won two Premiership titles and a Heineken Cup with Wasps
London Wasps skipper and England flanker Tom Rees has signed a new two-year deal to keep him at Adams Park until 2013.
The 25-year-old is a product of the club's academy and made his debut for Wasps first-team in 2005.
But two shoulder injuries have limited the player to just five appearances this season.
Rees said: "We have a great squad, coaching team and group of fans and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else."
He added: "Having come through a difficult season with injury, the support of everyone at the club was fantastic and just further cements that 'Wasps family' that we all talk about."
Whilst much of the talk at this time of the season is centered on new signings, retention of high quality players like Tom has been hugely important to us and to the club's future
Rees, who made his England debut in 2007 in a 26-18 defeat by France, was chosen to play for England Saxons this summer but has chosen instead to remain at Wasps to work on strengthening his shoulder.
Wasps director of rugby Tony Hanks said: "To come through two shoulder surgeries and periods of lengthy rehabilitation to lead the team in some of the crucial last round fixtures is admirable.
"Whilst much of the talk at this time of the season is centred on new signings, retention of high quality players like Tom has been hugely important to us and to the club's future," Hanks added.
