Glasgow have re-signed DTH van der Merwe on a two-year-deal.

Warriors say they have secured the Canada international's services despite significant interest from elsewhere in the Magners League's joint-second top try-scorer.

The new deal is subject to the 24-year-old's UK work permit and visa being extended.

Van der Merwe said: "It was quite an easy decision to make.

"Sean Lineen (head coach) gave me a shot two years ago and now it's time to repay that faith.

"I've enjoyed my time with Glasgow and I now want to build on what we have here.

"We've had a bit of a slow season this year but we can only build from here and hopefully, over the next five games, we can start that process for next season.

"A lot of the players here have over 100 caps for the club and are still only 24 or 25 years old so there is a lot of experience, internationally as well, despite them being young guys.

"They will be a key factor for Glasgow in the years to come."
