Exeter fly-half Ignacio Mieres has signed a new two-year contract to keep him at Sandy Park until at least 2014.
The 24-year-old Argentina international has made the Chiefs No.10 shirt his own this season, scoring 240 points for the West Country club in all competitions and helping them challenge for an Aviva Premiership play-off berth.
Mieres joined Exeter from Deportiva Francesa in October 2010 and is delighted to have committed his future to the club, despite Argentina's involvement in the expanded Rugby Championship meaning he could miss the start of each season if selected by the Pumas.
Meires said: "I'm really happy to have signed because I always said I wanted to stay at Exeter. I knew it was a difficult contract because of the situation with Argentina, but after lots of talks both parties are happy with the contract.
"I wanted to stay here and (head coach) Rob (Baxter) wanted to keep me here, so I'm really happy the club - who have been great throughout - have decided to keep me and not oppose any call-up I may get from Argentina."
