LEFT-ARM spinner Simon Kerrigan has signed a new two-year deal at Lancashire, the county have announced.

The 27-year-old, who has taken 294 first-class wickets in 96 matches, was part of the Lancashire side that won the 2011 County Championship title.

Kerrigan was also the Red Rose's most recent academy graduate to represent England when he made his Test debut against Australia at The Oval in 2013.

He said: "I'm very proud to have signed a new contract with the club I love.

"We've got a young, talented and developing squad here at Emirates Old Trafford with a lot of potential and it is one I'm hugely excited to be a part of."

Lancashire head coach and cricket director Ashley Giles added: "He is a senior figure within the changing room and he has significant importance both on the field and off it.

"His first-class record speaks for itself and he's a valuable part of our squad moving forward."
