The 23-year-old loosehead came through the Arms Park region’s youth system and returned to the Welsh capital in 2020 following a season with Saracens.

Carre’s existing deal had been due to expire at the end of the current campaign.

“It is a really exciting place to be at the moment and it is great that I can continue to be a part of that,” Carre, who has won 16 Test caps and is part of Wayne Pivac’s Wales squad for the forthcoming Guinness Six Nations, told the Cardiff website.

“I’m really looking forward to driving things forward both individually and as a team.”

Cardiff have already strengthened for next season by signing the likes of Liam Williams, Taulupe Faletau and Thomas Young, and director of rugby Dai Young was delighted to see Carre extend his stay.

“He is still a young man, particularly as an international prop, and he will continue to grow, develop and mature in the front row,” said the Cardiff boss.
