Aviva Premiership club Wasps have announced new contracts for three members of their squad.

England Saxons full-back Rob Miller, wing Josh Bassett and Irish centre Brendan Macken have all agreed fresh terms.

Wasps, meanwhile, confirmed that fly-half Alex Lozowski would join Premiership rivals Saracens next season.

"I am really pleased that Rob, Josh and Brendan have all committed to Wasps," the club's rugby director Dai Young said.

"They are young, skilful players who have fantastic potential and I am sure they will continue to develop and prove themselves as top-class players."

Regarding Lozowski's exit, Young added: " We are really disappointed to lose Alex, as we really wanted him to stay. He's a very talented player and we certainly had big plans for him here.

"We have been in discussion with Alex since the end of last season, trying to agree a contract extension.

"However, Alex made us aware early on this season that he planned to move on, and he will leave with our best wishes."
