VERENIKI Goneva has extended his stay with England-based Leicester Tigers club after signing a new deal over the weekend.

The former Flying Fijian, who has spent two seasons at Tigers, has scored 18 tries in 37 appearances so far.

Goneva was rumoured to be moving to France but agreed to extend his stay in England.

"I'm very happy to stay with Leicester Tigers. The club, the players and the supporters have been very good to me since I came here," Goneva told the club website.

Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill said the 30-year-old Fijian had become a very important player for the club.

"Leicester Tigers is a big club in English and European rugby, and we want to keep hold of our big players," Cockerill said.

"I'm delighted that Niki has agreed to stay beyond the end of this season and it will be a very popular decision with the rest of the players and with our supporters."
