"Each of these players has had significant game time with us in recent months and has grown in stature and influence. A number of them have had valuable experience as a result of our injury list and have responded positively to the high-pressure situations - showing great competitive spirit and ambition.
"We are keen to create a more sustainable look to our rugby operation and this is just the start. Developing young Welsh talent such as the likes of Jonathan Davies, Dominic Day, Lou Reed and others forms a fundamental part of the future success and sustainability of this region.
"The emergence of these players has been a real success story for us this season and we are pleased to be moving forward in this way by retaining and developing talented young players at key stages in their careers.
"This also has to be good news for Welsh rugby in the long-term as we see significant young Welsh talent staying here and advancing quickly from within the Scarlets region.
"Our move to Parc y Scarlets has allowed us to intensify our coaching sessions and to develop our squad in a faster-paced environment. They have all responded well and this is a very positive indicator for the future as we secure and develop the next line of top Scarlets performers."
