Saints have announced new deals for five of their first-team players – and more contract renewals are imminent as the club looks to shape its squad for next season.
Tom Wood, Christian Day, Sam Dickinson, Ben Nutley and Mike Haywood have committed their futures to Northampton.
And the Chron understands further re-signings will be revealed in the next day or so.
Retention is the name of the game at Franklin’s Gardens as Saints have assembled a squad packed with power.
And director of rugby Jim Mallinder said: “Our aim is to have as good a squad as we possibly can, and this starts with making sure we re-sign the quality players we have here already.
“It is a big statement for both the club and the players that these agreements have been done so early.”
