Scarlets wing George North has vowed to remain in Wales for the long term and that he is not interested in furthering his career at a French club
North has two years left on his current Scarlets contract but he revealed that he plans to stay longer than that.
I’m very happy down at the Scarlets at the moment,” he told BBC Wales.
“I’m getting game time on the pitch and at for my age that’s what you want to get a bit more exposure and experience out there.
“I can’t see myself going elsewhere right now. I’m enjoying my rugby in Wales. I’m there for two years now. So happy days really,” added North.
The 19-year-old - who was one of Wales’ star performers during their successful Grand Slam campaign - said unlike other Wales internationals, like Huw Bennett, Gethin Jenkins and Luke Charteris, he has not been approached by Top 14 clubs.
“No not at the moment. It’s been quite quiet so it’s quite nice really to have a bit less pressure and play rugby really,” explained North.
The speedster emphasised that he has no intention of leaving Wales when his current contract is up for renewal at the end of the 2013/14 season.
“I’ll be 21 then so it’s still quite young to be leaving Wales, so hopefully I stay until I’m 30-odd and then if someone wants me then I might go then,” said North.
” But at the moment I’m happy where I am.”
