"He has established himself as a senior member of the playing group," Northampton director of rugby Chris Boyd told the club website.

"Mikey is part of an exciting crop of hookers in our squad who are all pushing each other to improve."

Northampton have not disclosed the length of Haywood's new deal at Franklin's Gardens.
