England bowler Chris Jordan has committed his future to Sussex after putting pen to paper on a new contract that runs until 2019.
The 29-year-old, who has represented his country in all three formats of the game, has been with Sussex since joining from Surrey following the conclusion of the 2012 season and he finished as the club's leading wicket-taker during this season's T20 Blast.
Jordan also took 52 wickets and scored 483 runs during this season's County Championship Division Two campaign and he admits he is delighted to have committed his future to the Hove-based outfit.
"I'm delighted to be extending my stay here at a club I have grown to love," said Jordan. "There is a lot of talent here and I'm looking forward to winning trophies with this great club."
Sussex's director of cricket, Keith Greenfield, is also pleased that Jordan has decided to commit his future to the county, as he believes the Barbados-born player can help inspire the team to County Championship promotion next season.
"It's fantastic that CJ has signed a contract extension, further committing his future to the club," said Greenfield. "He is becoming a key, senior figure in the squad and is playing an important role in developing the younger bowling group."
