Lee-Lo joined Cardiff in 2015 and quickly became a fan favourite thanks to his performances for the Blues, winning the Peter Thomas Player of the Season award in May.

He has scored nine tries in 57 appearances for the club and is a regular fixture in the performance charts for the Pro14 club.

There was interest from elsewhere in his services but the 31-year-old says he had no hesitation in staying in Wales.

"I've loved my time here so far – we have a great squad and my family are really happy in Cardiff, so it was an easy decision to make," he said to Planet Rugby.

"I'm enjoying my rugby and we have so many exciting, attacking players. The style we try to play really suits me, especially on the Arms Park, which is an amazing place to play.

"I'm really grateful to everyone at Cardiff Blues for the opportunity and now I'm just looking forward to the future and improving as a team."
