Exeter Chiefs have released a statement from Scotland fullback Stuart Hogg, where he has “quashed speculation” that he is set to leave the club.

Hogg had been linked with big money to Racing 92 and potentially linking up with Scotland flyhalf and former Glasgow Warriors teammate Finn Russell at the Parisan club.

A statement from the club reads: “Following media reports over the weekend that the Scotland and British & Irish Lions back was looking at moving away from Sandy Park at the end of the current campaign, the 29-year-old has responded to these claims with a short and concise statement.

He wrote: “Further to recent speculation about my future, I’m happy to say that I will be honouring my contract at Exeter Chiefs and I am massively excited about the future. My family and I are very settled and I’m keen to win more titles here.”

Hogg moved to the Chiefs from Glasgow Warriors ahead of the 2019/20 season and quickly made an impact, helping the Devon club to secure a historic Premiership and Champions Cup double in his first year at the club.

One of four Chiefs selected for last summer British & Irish Lions tour to South Africa, Hogg has to date made 47 first team appearances for the club, scoring 14 tries.
