Chris Jordan, the England seamer, has signed a contract extension with Sussex ahead of the 2019 county season. The length of the deal has not been specified.

The 30-year-old signed for Sussex ahead of the 2013 season. Since then, he has picked up 267 wickets and scored 2,410 runs in 119 appearances for the county.

“I think I have developed very well as a cricketer here and I couldn’t see a better place to continue my development,” said Jordan after signing the new deal. “This is a great club with great people. Ever since I walked through the door here, everyone has always made me feel so welcome. It’s become home.

“I’m looking forward to getting some silverware at some point during my time here. We came quite close last season, so hopefully, we can build on our performances and go one better this year.”

“It’s great to have CJ sign again with us,” said Jason Gillespie, the Sussex head coach. “He has a brilliant work ethic when it comes to all aspects of his preparation for matches, coupled with his great skill.

“He’s an experienced player who sets a fine example around the group and who works well with all his teammates.”
