In-demand Wales wing Steff Evans has ended speculation over his future by signing a new deal with the Scarlets.
The 25-year-old flyer attracted interest from France as he neared the end of his contract.
Evans has decided to remain with his home region ahead of the Six Nations, with no mention from the Scarlets of the length of his new deal.
Capped 13 times by the Six Nations champions, Evans said: “I am loving my rugby here at the moment so it was an easy decision to stay with the Scarlets.

“The coaches have built a great environment that all the players are buying into and there’s a real buzz about the place at the moment.
“This is my home region, I grew up watching the Scarlets and to have made more than 100 appearances is an achievement I am hugely proud of.
“The squad here is as strong as it has been since I have been here and I really feel there are exciting times ahead.
“The boys have been playing some great rugby this season, we are still alive in two competitions and I am looking forward to playing my part in what should be an exciting few months to come.”
