Mark Cueto is set to extend a brilliant thirteen year spell at the Aviva Premiership Rugby Football Union club the Sale Sharks by signing a new deal with the Salford based side.

Cueto, a former winger for England and the British and Irish Lions is in the last year of his current contract with the side and there was widespread speculation at the end of last season that this would be his last with the club and he would retire at the end of the term and look for a new career opportunity in the broadcast media circuit.

But with the record try scorer in the history of the Aviva Premiership being in scintillating form, scoring six tries and being the key cog in the Sale Sharks that has improved vastly since their relegation battle last season, he could be given a new contract as the club look to tie him down with the club for one more season.

Steve Diamond, the Director of Rugby of the club is extremely to retain the services of the long serving winger as well. And now Cueto, who turned 34 years old on Boxing Day, has revealed that he would love to spend another year at the club and stated that he is hopeful of coming to terms over a new deal.

He stated that he is in the last year of his current contract but he is keen on carrying on for another year. He mentioned that he has always maintained that he will not play simply for the sake of it and will quit the moment he stops enjoying the game. However, he mentioned how much he adores the Sale Sharks and how he would love to spend one more year at his beloved club and see them win a trophy.
