Cardiff Blues' Samoa international centre Rey Lee-Lo has signed a new long-term contract with the PRO14 side.

Lee-Lo, 31, arrived at the Arms Park in 2015 and has made 57 appearances for the club.

Lee-Lo told the club website: "I've loved my time here so far -- we have a great squad and my family are really happy in Cardiff, so it was an easy decision to make.

"I'm enjoying my rugby and we have so many exciting, attacking players. The style we try to play really suits me, especially on the Arms Park, which is an amazing place to play.

"I'm excited by the squad we're developing, the players coming through and I'm confident we are heading in the right direction."

Cardiff Blues chief executive Richard Holland said: "Rey has proved a brilliant addition since he arrived at Cardiff Blues and it is great to see how comfortable and happy he is here.

"He was the standout performer throughout last season and is proving instrumental once again in the current campaign.

"With more than 75 percent of our squad Welsh, and with so many promising youngsters coming through our academy, it is vital to have a strong core of overseas talent to supplement that and pass on their experience.

"Rey has been invaluable in that respect and we are thrilled he will remain at Cardiff Arms Park for years to come."
