Scotland international Huw Jones says Glasgow Warriors'”worldclass” coaching helped convince him to extend his stay until at least 2021.

Jones, 25, has played 15 days for the Warriors since making his debut Montpellier at December 20 17.

And the centre, who combined from the Stormers last year, has set his sights on winning trophies.

“20-19 is going to be a major season for Glasgow Warriors and Scotland,” said Jones.

Jones has scored four tries for Warriors, also won his first Scotland cap against Japan from 2016, going on to win a further 18 so far.

He had been heavily linked with a move to English Premiership side Leicester Tigers but has chosen to stay in Scotland.

“You are handled a good deal of improved (playing in Scotland) and it can help that you’re closer to this Scotland coaches,” Jones told Glasgow Warriors TV.

“The coaching setup only at Glasgow Warriors is worldclass, therefore it’s definitely the ideal decision for my livelihood “

Glasgow Warriors head trainer Dave Rennie said it was”great news” for Warriors who Jones has signed a new deal.

“He has turned into a routine for Scotland and I am confident he’ll have a big role to play for us over the upcoming few decades,” he said.
