Ireland international Simon Zebo has ended speculation over his future by signing a new two-year contract to remain at Munster.

The 28-year-old follows in the footsteps of provincial team-mates Keith Earls and Conor Murray who signed extensions with the two-time European champions last week.

The versatile back made 96 appearances for his native province and has finished as Munster's top try scorer in each of the last four seasons.

"It's great to have even more good news on the contract front today," head coach Anthony Foley said today.

"Simon's record speaks for itself and keeping a player with his experience and versatility is key to our plans going forward so we are delighted that he has committed his future to Munster.”

Zebo has won 21 international caps since making his bow against New Zealand four years ago and was part of Joe Schmidt's side that won the 2015 Six Nations.

The Cork native was also a member of the victorious Lion tour to Australia in 2013.
