Bresnan extends Yorkshire deal

England seam-bowling all-rounder Tim Bresnan has signed a new contract with Yorkshire, the county have announced.

The 28-year-old, who scored 105 not out to help England beat Essex in the LV= Challenge this week, is now tied to the White Rose until December 2016.

Pontefract-born Bresnan made his first-class debut for Yorkshire against Northamptonshire in 2003 and has represented England in 18 Tests, 76 one-day internationals and 25 Twenty20 internationals.

Yorkshire director of cricket Martyn Moxon said: "It is great news that Tim has committed his long-term future to the club.

"Tim has firmly established himself as an England regular but his commitment to Yorkshire is vital in our on-going efforts of developing a strong squad based around players produced through the club development system."

Bresnan becomes the latest Yorkshire player to commit his future to the club, with England team-mate Jonny Bairstow, Gary Ballance, Steve Patterson, Moin Ashraf and Azeem Rafiq all penning new deals this summer.
