Glasgow centre Peter Horne has signed a new deal which secures him to the club until May 2015.

The 22-year-old is currently a contracted member of the Scotland Sevens squad and, like back-row forward James Eddie, will complete his commitments in the abbreviated game before rejoining the Warriors set-up on a full-time basis in the summer.

Prior to joining up with the Scotland Sevens earlier this campaign, Horne was in fine form for Sean Lineen's men, including producing a match-winning try in the historic RaboDirect PRO12 victory away to Leinster.

He told Glasgow's website: "I'm thrilled to have signed a new contract with the Warriors. All the signs are that it's going to be an exciting place to be over the next few years, and I'm delighted to have the opportunity to be part of that.

"I'm really enjoying my time with Scotland Sevens, and with six tournaments to play, including the one in Glasgow, there's a huge amount to look forward to on that front over the rest of the season.

"I'll be giving my all to win selection for those tournaments and help the team achieve success, before coming back to the Warriors and doing my bit to help the club build on the positive signs we've seen both on and off the pitch this season."

Head coach Lineen added: "Identifying and tying down our best young players is key to the progress everyone at Glasgow Warriors strongly believes is possible over this and the coming seasons.

"I've been a big fan of Pete for quite some time, and he's really come on as a player since he joined us from the National Academy in 2009. He's got the full range of skills for the modern centre - great hands, a confident kicking game and an excellent step.

"Allied to those gifts, he's one of the bravest guys around and he'll run himself into the ground for the team.

"Playing with Scotland Sevens has been fantastic for his game, especially his decision-making under pressure, and I'm really looking forward to working with him to ensure he fulfils his undoubted potential."
