Whitten commits to Chiefs

Exeter back Ian Whitten has agreed a new two-year contract with the Aviva Premiership club.

Whitten, who can play on the wing or at centre, has made 34 appearances for the Chiefs since arriving at Sandy Park from Ulster in summer 2012.

"Not only is Ian a great player, but he's been a great character ever since he arrived," Exeter head coach Rob Baxter said.

"He's a very popular member of the squad for lots of reasons. Some of them are to do with what a good rugby player he is and some of them are do with the character he is."
