Tim Visser has agreed to a two year deal with Harlequins, according to reports. The Scotland wing joined Quins in 2015 and has scored 28 tried in 53 games for the club. The Aviva Premiership side decided to extend the contract of the 30-year old for his performances.
The player, who has featured 33 times for Scotland, said he agreed terms partly because he wants to continue to work with the coaching staff of the club. He specifically mentioned Nick Evans and Nick Easter who have helped him improve in the last year.
Evans is a former New Zealand rugby union star who used to play at fly half and fullback. He joined Harlequins back in 2008 and remained with them until his retirement. He retired at the end of the 2016/17 season and became a coach for the club.
Easter on the other hand started at Orrell before moving to Harlequins. He played for the England national team in the 2007, 2011 and 2015 Rugby World Cup and the annual Six Nations Championships before his retirement in 2016 to become a coach.
Visser said both men have helped him develop in the past year. The player adds that Kingston is taking the squad to a place he wants to be involved in hence the move to extend his deal with the club.
